RREA grant proposals for projects, student interns due July 1
The UC ANR Renewable Resources Extension Act (RREA) Statewide Program is soliciting proposals for projects that will develop and/or support new or existing UC Cooperative Extension projects and/or activities that address the educational and extension needs in the management of California's valuable renewable resources on forest and rangeland.
The primary purpose of this program is to promote proper management of these resources, especially on private lands, and to provide the information, education and training needed by Extension personnel, landowners, land managers and natural resource professionals. Maximum award is $15,000 per project.
RREA is also accepting proposals that will use the services and talents of student interns. Internships are open to undergraduate or graduate students from any institution of higher education in California, particularly the University of California and the California State University.
Principal investigators will not be granted additional RREA funds to pay for supplemental costs associated with the project. Student interns are expected to work on projects or activities that address educational and extension needs in the management of California's renewable resources. Intern proposals must demonstrate the connection to UC Cooperative Extension (county or campus office). Interns will be funded up to $6,000.
Submission deadline is 5 p.m. on July 1, 2022. For details and to apply, log into the ANR Portal and click on the "2022-2023 RREA Project & Student Intern Grants" link or https://ucanr.edu/urs/propstart.cfm?authorgrantnumber=280.
