Seed grants available from university extension

North Carolina State University's Office of Extension, Engagement, and Economic Development has announced a grant program to provide seed money for developing strategies to address critical North Carolina issues.

Successful proposals must demonstrate how the seed funding can be used to leverage additional future project funding. Collaborative partnerships, both internal and external, will also be given greater weight in the review process.

Faculty do not need an extension appointment to submit a proposal, but the proposals must be directly related to work with audiences outside the university.

Last year's recipients included four county Cooperative Extension centers, seven N.C. State colleges, the Industrial Extension Service and the Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science.

Submission guidelines are available on the Extension, Engagement and Economic Development web site.

The University Standing Committee on Extension and Engagement
will manage the award process.
