Strategic Networks and Initiatives Program
2020/2021 Request for Proposals
 
The College of Agricultural Sciences (CAS) Office for Research and Graduate Education invites proposals for Strategic Networks and Initiatives Program (SNIP) grants to be awarded at three levels in 2020/2021. SNIP provides support for faculty-driven, interdisciplinary initiatives at the vanguard of agricultural and natural resources research. At all levels, funding will be awarded to collaborative interdisciplinary teams seeking to investigate focused research problems in pursuit of large-scale extramural grant opportunities.

Level I: Launch Grants
Up to $10,000 for one year to support the initial development of an innovative research question and the formation of an interdisciplinary collaborative team required to address it.
Read the specific requirements for Level I
 
Level II: Pursuit Grants
Up to $25,000 for two years to strengthen established interdisciplinary research initiatives to be competitive for large-scale extramural grant submissions.
Read the specific requirements for Level II
 
Level III: Cohort Grants
Support for 3-5 new Ph.D. students for up to two years to provide established interdisciplinary research initiatives with the opportunity to build interactive graduate student-faculty teams who will pursue extramural funding.
Read the specific requirements for Level III

NEW THIS YEAR! Cross-college collaborations:
For the current cycle, Level I and Level II SNIP grants can also be expanded to initiate collaborations with investigators from other colleges at Penn State. Cross-college collaborations require written support and prior approval for the cost share (if funds are necessary for supporting non-CAS personnel) from the associate dean for research of the collaborating unit.

Science-to-Practice (S2P) Grant Program
2020/2021 Request for Proposals
The College of Agricultural Sciences (CAS) Office of Research and Graduate Education and Penn State Extension invite proposals for the formation and development of teams proposing to explore innovative methods, structures, and projects that foster the translation of research into outputs for dissemination and implementation. 
 
Interdisciplinary teams of eligible participants can apply for grants up to $10,000 for one year, renewable as funding permits for up to three years. The purpose of the S2P program is to foster the formation of integrated research and extension teams in order to address pressing, complex challenges that require multiple perspectives and modes of knowledge. The S2P supports applied research-based activities that prioritize the development of collaborative networks in the college across research and extension faculty and extension educators as well as engaging partners beyond, such as practitioners, decision makers, and thought leaders in the field.
