The Rutgers Raritan River Consortium (R3C) is in the process of reviewing mini-grant applications for projects or research by faculty, staff and post-doctoral students that address Raritan River, basin and bay issues. The intent of the mini-grant program is to promote multidisciplinary collaboration by Rutgers faculty, staff and students to address water quality, public access, habitat and other sustainability concerns in the Raritan River region. A further purpose of the mini-grant program is to encourage Rutgers faculty, staff and students to partner with stakeholders from across the Raritan region to advance cooperative watershed planning for a healthier Raritan.
Applications were due May 3, 2019. Awarded funds can be expended between date of award (likely mid to late May) and December 31, 2019. Mini-grant funds can be used for summer salary, student wages, research assistant support, travel, supplies, or other direct research expenses. Requests for support can be for work that is part of a larger project but require specific goals objectives, deliverables and reporting tied to the mini-grant request.
