Funding Opportunities

  • Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research

    The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) is accepting two-page, ad hoc submissions for projects. The Foundation is especially interested in funding unique ideas, applied research (although fundamental research may be funded), and new partnerships. A 100% funding match from a donor or partner is required. FFAR can help facilitate the acquisition of matching funds for projects of interest. Because there is no formal call for submissions, PIs may want to contact FFAR to discuss their project idea and the format for the two-page document.
