PCGFS Student Innovation Grants
January 29, 2014
The Purdue Center for Global Food Security (PCGFS) announces a new grant competition for undergraduate students. The PCGFS Student Innovation Grants support undergraduate students in any academic discipline working in teams to develop a technology or program that may render creative solutions to a vexing food security problem for stressed communities in a developing country or for programs that support food insecure communities within the state of Indiana. Two grants of $10,000 each for international projects and two grants of $3,000 each for local projects will be awarded. To carry innovations forward, students must commit to entering their projects in subsequent national or international innovation grant competitions.
The Purdue Center for Global Food Security thanks the Deans of each of Purdue's Colleges for their financial contributions which made the Student Innovation Grants possible.
