2024 Proposal Guidelines

2024 Research Proposal Submission Guidelines
LOI Deadline: June 15, 2024
Proposal Deadline: September 1, 2024

The North American Maple Syrup Council, Inc. Research and Education Fund (NAMSC-RF) is pleased to announce a Request for Maple Research Proposals (RFP). Qualified research institutions, state/provincial governmental research professionals and privately held research and development organizations (applicants) are encouraged to apply for funding consideration. Preference will be given to collaborative projects and those applicants documenting leveraged support from sources outside the NAMSC-RF.

To help ensure that proposals meet the requirements and interests of the Fund, we are asking applicants to first submit Letters of Interest (LOIs). These should be no more than two pages, and should broadly summarize the proposal the applicant intends to submit, including:
• Issues to be addressed and questions to be answered by the project.
• Qualifications of institution/principal investigators.
• Amount to be requested.
The NAMSC Research Committee will review the LOIs and communicate with applicants by July 15 to invite those selected to submit a full proposal.
