Invitation for Proposals

The AAP is inviting proposals for its initial partnership activities in 2017. As a university-wide initiative, AAP invites proposals from diverse disciplinary perspectives that address the priority areas of agri-food systems; water, energy and the environment; youth employment; education; cultural heritage development; and health and nutrition.

Successful proposals will be submitted by teams that include both MSU faculty and partners from African organizations and should be designed to lay the foundation for longer duration and sustainable partnerships between MSU and African partners. Grants awarded will range from $50,000 to $200,000 for projects to be carried out over an 18-month time frame.

Proposals must be submitted by November 21, 2016, for consideration.
