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 work-related stress and mental health; the prevention of slips, trips and falls; machine safety; and chemical safety.


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 at least one specific research question directed toward the prevention of illness and injury resulting from agricultural work exposures.

Individuals from under-represented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply.
