Alaska Native-Serving and Native Hawaiian-Seving Institutions Education Competitive Grants Program

by:

The National Institute of Food and Agriculture, otherwise referred to as NIFA, is a United States federal government agency operating under the Department of Agriculture. The creation of NIFA was mandated in the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008.

The grants and programs of the NIFA are all geared towards the achievement of its general agency mission which is "to advance knowledge for agriculture, the environment, human health and well-being, and communities by supporting research, education, and extension programs."

In keeping with this mission, the National Institute of Food and Agriculture has recently constituted the Alaska Native-Serving and Native Hawaiian-Seving Institutions Education Competitive Grants Program wherein it intends to award funds in an attempt to support education, applied research, and several other related community development programs.

The program wills to address unique educational needs that is relative to each institution. Granted that these needs, however, fall within a broadly defined arena of food and agricultural sciences-related disciplines.

In the context of the program, food and agricultural-related sciences refer to programs in basic, applied, and developmental research, extension, as well as teaching activities in food and fiber, agricultural, renewable natural resources, forestry, and physical and social sciences.
