This opportunity provides funding for new agricultural health and safety research projects that have high likelihood of leading to more comprehensive projects or activities.

Priority will be given to projects addressing mental health; machine safety; chemical safety; and slips, trips, and falls prevention.


The GPCAH especially encourages applications from new academic/scientific investigators (including graduate students) and those newly interested in agricultural safety and health research. Such investigators are encouraged to apply in collaboration with more experienced health scientists. Academic track projects should have a specific scientific hypothesis and should aim to advance the state of scientific knowledge relevant to the prevention of agricultural illness and injury.

Individuals from under-represented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply. Proposals for a pilot project from outside of the region will be accepted if the proposals address agriculture safety and health hazards that are known to exist within the upper U.S. Midwest.
