BURLINGTON, Vt. — Graduate students interested in applying for a research grant through the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Program have until 5 p.m. ET on April 19 to submit a proposal.
Any graduate student enrolled at an accredited college, university or veterinary school who is proposing to conduct research in one of the New England states, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, or Washington, D.C. is eligible to apply.
