UC Global Food Initiative Funding Opportunity

Deadlines: May 31st, 2018

The UC Global Food Initiative addresses one of the critical issues of our time: how to sustainably and nutritiously feed a world population expected to reach eight billion by 2025. If you have a creative idea for how we could leverage UC resources to tackle the issue of creating a sustainable and just food system, please consider sharing your ideas.  Individuals interested in proposing new projects are strongly encouraged to review the existing topic areas and working groups and to seek partnerships with the existing groups if possible.  If you are interested in proposing something that does not fit into any of the working groups, it is recommended that you seek partners on at least one other UC campus and submit a joint proposal that will impact more than one campus.  The more campuses that are involved, the more likely the proposal is to be accepted.  Please also note that proposals related to UC student food security should be applying through the Food Security Taskforce (see above) rather than this opportunity. This funding opportunity is for projects that cannot already be funded by the Food Security Taskforce.

To submit a proposal, please email it to: Katie Maynard.  Katie can also be contacted for any questions.
