RSPs typically have 5-year life spans as funded by the United States Agency for International Development (though funding is provided only annually).
During the current grant, our CRSP sought and received a 2-year extension, making for a 7-year program. The summer of 2003 will mark the end of those seven years.
A proposal for a new 5-year grant (20032008) is under development and will be submitted to USAID in early 2003.
The PD/A CRSP will be seeking proposals in the field of aquaculture research.
A Request for Proposals (RFP) will be issued on August 2002. Successful proposals to the PD/A CRSP will form part of the CRSPs overall grant proposal package to USAID. The RFP will contain complete details on programmatic and technical considerations for award of a PD/A CRSP project.
The PD/A CRSP anticipates funding a number of proposals that comprise multiple investigations, disciplines, researchers, and institutions and that focus on a specific region.
Broad participation by eligible institutions and researchers not previously engaged in collaboration with the PD/A CRSP is encouraged.
The RFP will be available at our website. For more information, call Steve Sempier at 541-737-6423 or email <email@example.com>.
