The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) is committed to research that solves problems and investigates new areas relevant to agriculture, food, forestry and the environment. The Office of Research & Graduate Education is responsible for the policies and procedures associated with formula funded and competitive research projects. We encourage fundamental research to gain basic knowledge in relevant agriculture fields, and multidisciplinary collaborations between institutions, agencies and fields of study to advance national goals established by the United States Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA NIFA)

Grant proposal support is provided by our Grants Development Officer, Nancy Abbott (Grants Development Office). Support services are provided to facilitate and streamline the grant application process, and to liaise between CANR faculty and UConn's Office for Sponsored Programs. Services include budget development, budget justifications, coordinating subaward proposal requirements, and facilitating proposal submission to the Office for Sponsored Programs.

In addition, research is supported by the Storrs Agricultural Experiment Station (SAES) which administers federal formula funds. Formula funds are distributed to approximately 90 approved projects annually. Projects are prioritized within departments and budgets support personnel, supplies, and travel to multistate research meetings.

CANR also supports Graduate Research through assistance with grant proposals, professional development, and the Graduate Research Council.
