The New York Corn & Soybean Growers Association is requesting proposals for 2015 corn research and education. Proposals must be received no later than 4 pm on February 28, 2015 at:
PO Box 605
Sackets Harbor, NY 13685 or
Funding decisions are expected to be made on or around March 30, 2015. Typical awards are expected to be $10,000 per project or less. NYCGSA reserves the right to negotiate award/contract funding with successful applicants.
The available funds for 2015 research and education projects will be awarded with funds from New York state. There is a limited amount of funding available, so this process will be competitive. In addition, funds will be awarded on a reimbursement basis. Grantees should be prepared for a lag time in receiving reimbursement, as the funding must first come from the state.

With support from Monsanto, NYCSGA & the Center for Food Integrity are bringing some advanced social-media training to Liverpool on January 30. This “301” level course will be an adaptation of the Center for Food Integrity’s popular Engage spokesperson training and will be specifically for those who already are active at blogging, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, etc. To repeat, this is not for hopefuls or beginners. This training will introduce participants to the “graduate level” of online social engagement.
