[February 12, 2018] SARE Graduate Students Workshop + Funding Opportunity

The Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) program offers support for M.S. and Ph.D. research in sustainable agriculture. The Florida SARE program provides training to graduate students that is specific to this grant program and focuses on what students need to include in a successful proposal. Our experience has been that students who attend the training sessions have greater success with their submissions. Please let graduate students in your department know about both the grant opportunity and about the training we offer to assist them in writing the proposal.
