I hope you are doing well and enjoying your summer. Here's a small seed grant opportunity that might be of interest to you.
All the best,

Dear Colleagues and AG2PI Community Members,
A major goal of the Agricultural Genome to Phenome Initiative (AG2PI https://ag2pi.org/) is to bring together agricultural scientists from multiple disciplines to work together in addressing shared challenges in genome-to-phenome research and related endeavors. As such, we have launched a *seed grant program* to foster first steps towards the development of community solutions to research needs and opportunities, as well as gaps in physical infrastructure and the data management pipeline.
This second round of the AG2PI seed grant program aims to fund around twelve (12) awards across three levels of support: Emerging (funds up to $20,000), Enabling (up to $50,000), and Establishing (up to $75,000). Applications will be due by 11:59pm CDT on Sunday, September 19th. The anticipated start date for funded projects is November 29, 2021 and each project may be 6-15 months in duration, depending on the funding level. Further details regarding the request for proposals, application and review can be found at the AG2PI website (https://www.ag2pi.org/seed-grants/).
AG2PI will be, again, hosting a Seed Grant Conference on August 12. This conference will provide an overview of our revised seed grant mechanism, examples of projects from the *three* *new focus areas* and will provide an opportunity to ask questions regarding the seed grants. Additionally, there will be a “teaming” event which will provide a virtual space to discuss your seed grant idea with like-minded researchers with whom you may want to work. Additional details will be available on our “Workshops & Activities” page as we continue to plan this event.
Feel free to share this message and opportunity with colleagues at your institution. If you have any questions regarding the mini-conference or seed grants, please direct them to Nicole Scott at email@example.com.
