ARI Microgrants

AgriRisk is a five-year program under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership that supports the research and development of new risk management tools for the agricultural sector.

The Microgrants component funds academic research on issues relevant to business risk in agriculture. Microgrants are available for academic research proposals that explore the development or improvement of alternative risk management tools and/or practices. The research needs to be relevant to the Canadian agriculture sector and be transferable beyond the applicant, resulting in a public good or benefit.

Successful applicants are eligible to receive up to $75,000 ($25,000 per year over 3 years) in non-repayable grant funding. Eligible applicants are academic institutions with proposals led by academic researchers. Graduate students may apply through their academic institution with the support of their thesis advisor and/or department head.

Application forms are accepted on a continuous basis until program funds have been allocated, or until otherwise posted on the Microgrants website. The program ends March 31, 2023.
