Western SARE – Sabbatical

  Grant Amount: $75,000


Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) is accepting applications to the Sabbatical Grants program. Grants provide an opportunity for faculty around the world to partner with farmers, ranchers, agricultural professionals, and researchers of the Western U.S. region. Projects focused on unexplored topics in underserved communities and understudied geographic locations are of special interest.
Projects must contain both research and education components; bring together, at the location where the sabbatical will be conducted, a team of local partners (researchers,students,agricultural professionals, and producers) to plan, implement, and disseminate the findings of the project; outline educational outreach plans for producers and agricultural professionals; establish
mechanisms to build research, education, and human capacity at the Sabbatical Host Institution; and produce quantifiable scholarly and educational products for researchers, producers, and agricultural professionals.
Sabbatical grants must address local research and education needs with special emphasis on underserved communities, understudied geographic locations, and/or unexplored topics.


Researchers eligible for a Sabbatical Leave who have the support of their home institution and who have demonstrated expertise
in sustainable agriculture research and education are eligible to apply for a Western SARE Sabbatical Grant.

While applicants for a Western SARE Sabbatical Grant could reside outside the Western region of the United States, including foreign countries, all research and education activities should be conducted within the Western U.S. region.

Applications should be done in association with a primary Host Institution located within the Western region, including universities, federal agencies, and non-governmental organizations. Having additional collaborating institutions and research sites in the Western U.S.region is allowed.
