This project funding is separate to that provided by the Canadian Poultry Research Council (CPRC). CFC’s contribution to the proposal will be limited to a maximum of $50,000 per project, with TFC contributing an additional $10,000 for research on darkling beetles, for a total of $60,000. Industry dollars, whether from CFC, TFC or other industry sources, must be matched with non-industry dollars at a ratio of at least 1:1. Higher leverage ratios are preferred.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
