Research and Education Grants
The Research and Education program funds outcome-based projects offering research, education, and demonstration projects that benefit farmers and explore new sustainable farm practices.
Projects should be directed toward research results that will translate quickly into farmer benefit, and farmers, extension staff, and other stakeholders should be involved in planning project content.
In the overview section you can get a description of the grant, who can apply, what type of projects can be funded, what is expected of grantees, and a timeline for submitting a preproposal and full proposal.
Professional Development and Research and Education projects are initially screened using a document called a preproposal. In this first step, each project is evaluated for content and for how clearly it addresses the regional outcome statement. This section explains how you submit a preproposal, when, the general guidelines on what we expect, and a brief description of how preproposals are evaluated.
If your project proceeds to the full grant proposal stage, you can use this section to learn about the application format, deadlines, review process, and other policy guidelines SARE has in place.
Find out what happens when a project is funded. Preview SARE's reporting, reimbursement, and policy requirements so you can find out ahead of time what we expect of successful grantees.
Read brief content summaries of previous awards to get a feel for the range of projects and content Northeast SARE is receptive to.
