An Invitation to the Research Community
You are invited to submit a proposal on strawberry research for consideration by NASGA. Included with this message are guidelines for you or others at your institution, to submit proposals for our 2014 funding decisions.
Please forward this invitation to your colleagues in plant pathology, entomology and weed science. NASGA supports research in strawberry production that will benefit its grower members.
Funding is generated through membership dues and our Research Foundation. We have committed an average of over $45,000 to research grants for each of the last 10 years. NASGA is sensitive to the concerns of research scientists with regard to funding, publishing and university demands. The maximum grant amount presently is $10,000.
Proposals are reviewed by a committee of academic and production representatives, and funding will be designated by priority by the Board in early March. Deadline for proposal submission is OCTOBER 15, 2013.
Proposals are to be sent by email to:
You do not have to be a member of NASGA to submit proposals and receive research grants. If you aren’t a member of NASGA, consider joining our organization. Membership applications can be found at www.nasga.org.
