FFAR Program Overview
The Foundation for Food and Agricultural Research (FFAR) seeks nominations for its New Innovator in Food and Agriculture Research Award. With this program, FFAR intends to support and promote future generations of exceptionally talented and creative new faculty who are conducting critical research and establishing research programs that will lead to expanded availability of food and facilitate the global practice of sustainable agriculture. The New Innovator Award seeks to promote career advancement of highly creative and promising new scientists who intend to make a long-term career commitment to research in food and agriculture and bring innovative, ground-breaking research initiatives and thinking to bear on problems facing food and agriculture.
Within the scope of the New Innovator Program, investigators will have the freedom to explore new avenues of inquiry that arise during their research. Therefore, FFAR is interested in the program of research to be explored and its impact as opposed to a list of very specific aims. It is expected that through this program investigators will have the ability to pursue highly creative ideas, to firmly establish their early lines of research into important food and agriculture scientific areas and provide stability in funding during their critical early career years by reducing the time spent on writing applications.
FFAR will award each applicant up to $100,000 per year for up to three years. A one-to-one cash match from non federal sources is required. FFAR will award up to ten 2018 New Innovators depending on the quality and budgets of proposals.
U.S. institutions of higher education, U.S. nonprofit institutions other than institutions of higher education, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture are invited to nominate up to two applicants for the 2018 New Innovator in Food and Agriculture Research Award. Nominated faculty members must have been hired on or after August 1, 2014, for his or her tenure-track or equivalent position and may work in any discipline or any department within the organization.
Institutions may submit up to two nominees to the New Innovator Award program. If you are interested in being one of two nominees from OSU, please submit an internal application according to the required internal submission instructions below.
