The Agricultural Research Programs (ARP) Research Assistantships are awarded each year on a competitive basis in an effort to support new tenure-track Assistant Professors as they establish their research programs by providing funding for graduate student research. A primary purpose of this program is to develop and promote research ideas which can be developed into proposals for extramural funding. Important areas of research not having access to outside sources of funding will be considered, however. Review the complete RFP for details. Proposals should be submitted via the link on the right.
