Douglas and Maria Bayer New Initiatives Fund for Sustainable Agriculture 2023 Request for Proposals

The Douglas and Maria Bayer New Initiatives Fund for Sustainable Agriculture was established in 2015 through a $1 million pledge from MSU alumni Doug and Maria Bayer.

As a result of the gift, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources is able to provide seed funding to support collaborative research projects in sustainable agriculture and food systems.


Administrative Fellows Program

AgBioResearch is announcing a call for applications for its fellowship program intended to introduce faculty to the type of work that ABR supports and provide insights into administrative careers. During the fellowship, fellows will be paired with a mentor from the ABR leadership team and expected to conduct a project designed with that mentor to help them gain insights into research administration. Fellows will also be expected to attend regular meeting with the ABR leadership team and will be encouraged to apply for additional leadership training as part of the experience. The fellowship will last for one year with the possibility of extension, and more details, including a description of the application process, can be found here. Applications are due on April 19, 2023.

Questions can be directed to Dana Infante, ABR associate director, at
