In an effort to further strengthen communication with Land-Grant faculty involved in social science activities in the rural South, the SRDC has established the Southern Rural Development Consortium. Individuals who are part of the Consortium will receive periodic updates from the SRDC on grant/contract opportunities. The list also aids the Center in identifying individuals with specialized rural development expertise (e.g., labor markets, rural health, rural education, etc.).
When grant opportunities relevant to the priority issues of the Center are available, the SRDC wants to identify social scientists in the South who can work in partnership with us in the development and implementation of these grant proposals. The Consortium is available to any Land-Grant faculty member with interest in rural development issues, including faculty in agricultural economics, rural sociology, youth development, human sciences, education, and other related disciplines. To join the Consortium, complete the form below and submit it.
