CAFNR Equipment Matching Grant Program

The equipment must be shared by several faculty members. Proposals must demonstrate matching funds as described elsewhere in this document.

CAFNR Ag-celerator for Agricultural Technologies (CAAT)

The program bridges the gap between academic research and industry by providing funding to CAFNR faculty-led teams to perform experiments to generate data that will ultimately lead to commercialization of new technologies.
