We are pleased to announce the 2021 Request for Applications (RFA) from the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Livestock Systems. This RFA intends to award grants for livestock systems-related research projects in our five target countries: Burkina Faso, Niger, Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Nepal. A key requirement is a partnership, as individuals are not eligible to apply. The applying team must include representatives from a target country and a Western country. The first major deadline for applicants is to submit a Concept Note by July 6, 2021.
The RFA guidelines and instructions on how to apply are at https://livestocklab.ifas.ufl.edu/rfa. The RFA document can be downloaded from that site or by clicking these links (English , French version).
If questions remain, potential applicants may submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 15, 2021. Questions submitted through other channels or after the June 15, 2021 deadline will not be considered. These questions are considered public records, and both questions and answers will be published on our website on June 17, 2021.
Please read the RFA document carefully. Turn to our website for updates, to investigate potential partners, and to understand what types of projects have been funded previously. It is our hope that you become inspired to prepare a compelling Concept Note.
Please forward this notification within your networks and encourage colleagues for whom this opportunity may be of particular interest to apply.
