Kelly MarshallResources, Soil Health Institute

Those looking for funding for reviews of soil health-related scientific literature and supporting compilations need look no further. The Soil Health Institute (SHI) is accepting applications now to June 23, 2017. The SHI will fund up to five grants at a maximum of $8,000 each for preparation of literature searches and summaries of soil health or retailed fields like land management, ecosystem processes and services like agriculture production, human health, or other relevant topics.

Products expected from successful grantees include a list of publications and other sources (reliable reports, websites, databases, etc.) on the chosen topic; a brief summary of each source reviewed; and a review paper synthesizing this information. References, summaries, and the review paper will be deposited in the SHI Landscape tool on-line library for free public access.

See the SHI website for more information and application details.
