Centers of Excellence Factsheet

The Agricultural Act of 2014 requires the National Institute of Food and Agriculture to identify centers of excellence for food and agricultural research, education, and extension. Applicants who meet the requirements of competitive grant funding opportunities are eligible to apply for center of excellence consideration as part of their grant application. If it is determined that the application meets centers of excellence criteria, the application receives priority consideration during the peer review process.
