American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture
Over the past 30+ years, the foundation has supported a wide range of research. In its early years, projects dealt with farm safety, public lands, asparagus marketing, and control of Africanized bees and fire ants. Later, major projects included effects of the North American Free Trade Agreement on American agriculture, reduction of elimination of crop protection tools for minor crops, development of a self-help checklist for water quality, rural health issues, and rural disaster relief. More recent projects have dealt with risk management, best management practices, agricultural marketing, nutrient managment, agricultural watersheds, remote sensing technology, and manure management. In 1998, the foundation expanded its scope to include agricultural education. This will include both classroom and consumer education programs about agriculture. As the public becomes further and further removed from the production of food and fiber, it becomes more important that educational programs and materials are available to create an understanding of the industry.

American Farmland Trust
Steward of the Land Award
Deadline: Dec. 1
Throughout America there are farmers for whom protecting agricultural land is more than a worthwhile goal -- it's a lifelong commitment. These farmers not only lead by example on their own farms, but they actively work to promote land stewardship at the community and state levels. To recognize these individuals, American Farmland Trust established the $10,000 Steward of the Land Award. Now in its eighth year, the award recognizes the American farmer or farm family who best demonstrates leadership in protecting farmland and caring for the environment. The award honors the memory of Peggy McGrath Rockefeller, an avid farmer and conservationist who helped found AFT. Nominees are judged on their efforts to promote farmland protection and to practice land stewardship on their farms. Winners receive a $10,000 cash stipend and a special memento inscribed with the recipient's name.

Eisenhower Fellowships (USA Program)
Since 1999, Eisenhower Fellowships has sent more than 250 U.S. citizens and permanent residents abroad. The USA Fellowship provides proven mid-career leaders with a customized four- or five-week professional experience in one or two countries in the EF network, as well as lifetime membership in a global community of fellows. Fellows hail from all professional fields, and represent the private, public and nonprofit sectors. USA Fellows are recruited on a national basis, with Leadership Steering Committees helping nominate and interview candidates in four regional hubs: Boston, MA; Research Triangle, NC; St. Louis, MO; and Philadelphia, PA. In 2016, two new regional hubs will open in San Francisco and Chicago to enhance the depth and breadth of the USA network. On fellowship, USA Fellows meet with leaders in their fields who can help them achieve their program goals, including many international Eisenhower Fellows. These interactions push Fellows to look beyond the day-to-day of their professional lives; to broaden and enhance their global perspective and partnerships; and to have a greater impact in their home region and professional sphere.
Exceptional candidates who receive a USA Fellowship participate in one of three programs:
(1) USA Fellowship: Around 10 candidates are awarded a five-week fellowship and visit one or two countries in the EF network. In collaboration with program staff and international Fellows, USA Fellows select the most professionally relevant and rewarding destinations from a list of nearly 30 countries in all regions of the globe. Wherever they travel, USA Fellows find themselves members of a global family of Fellows located all over the world, who support USA programming.
(2) Zhi-Xing China Eisenhower Fellowship: Ten candidates are awarded a four-week fellowship focused exclusively to China. This new program was launched in 2015 after many years of partnership between EF and the China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE). Starting in Beijing and ending in Shanghai, Fellows experience two and a half weeks of individualized programming in cities and towns across China.
(3) EF Agriculture Program: EF's Agricultural Committee selects one Fellow each year who works in industrial agricultural production -- an active farmer or rancher -- to visit one or two countries in the EF network. Fellows have explored such topics as water conservation, soil health, animal husbandry and crop rotation.

Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research
Rapid Outcomes from Agricultural Research (ROAR) Program
The Rapid Outcomes from Agricultural Research (ROAR) program, created by FFAR, provides nimble deployment of funds to support research and outreach in response to emerging or unanticipated threats to the nationís food supply or agricultural systems. ROAR participants, including but not limited to university researchers, farmers or producers, commodity groups and government officials, may apply for funds prior to an outbreak for development of diagnostics, monitoring and mitigation strategies, or enter into an agreement with FFAR that enables the quick release of funds should an outbreak occur. In this way, the ROAR program supports pre-outbreak efforts, and in the case of an outbreak, fills the gap until traditional, longer-term funding sources can be secured. Up to $150,000 per one-year grant is available from FFAR, with the requirement that recipients provide equal or greater matching funds from non-U.S. federal sources. The annual proposal deadline is May 1.

Registrants then receive a list of all currently relevant funding sources. The registration information is stored and can be used on subsequent visits. The entire sign-up process, and delivery of available funding sources, can be a bit tedious: about five to twenty minutes, depending on the connection speed.
