NSRC announces the 2022 Indigenous Forest Knowledge Fund request for proposals

The Northeastern States Research Cooperative (NSRC) recognizes and respects the deep, primary knowledge of Tribal Nations in the Northern Forest. In support of this knowledge, NSRC announces the 2022 request for proposals for the Indigenous Forest Knowledge Fund

Proposals are welcome for:

  • education, mentorship, and training of Indigenous youth in applied forest research and/or Traditional Ecological Knowledge about forest systems
  • applied forest research that advances Tribal Priorities
  • synthesis and translation of forest research and/or Traditional Ecological Knowledge to advance communications, outreach, and economic programs for Tribal Nations and Indigenous communities.

UMaine’s Center for Research on Sustainable Forests is the state institutional partner for NSRC.
