A spark to start the fire

Sparkler emitting a flare

Sparking new ideas is the goal of the new Swette Center for Sustainable Food Systems research grant program. Ten grants of up to $5,000 each will be awarded to Arizona State University faculty-led research teams proposing interdisciplinary food systems work. Yes, this is a “mini-grant" program so the award will likely fall far short of covering the full costs of your research — but we hope that these resources can help catalyze new work and, in some cases, assist ASU faculty in completing the “pre-work” necessary to pursue larger grant opportunities.

The application requires minimal work and is due March 29th, 2019. To be eligible for consideration, a proposal must include at least two people from different disciplines. Learn more details on what is required and how to apply by reading our call for proposals.
