Research Office


The College of Agriculture Research Office provides programs and resources to support faculty scholarship and graduate education, including proposal development and grant/contract support, linkages with funding agencies and the private sector, interdisciplinary team building, and statistical consulting service. Through the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station (AAES), the office administers the USDA NIFA Hatch projects, provides seed funding for research through the AAES Competitive Seed Grants program, and supports faculty travel to multistate project meetings. In addition, the office coordinates a series of professional development workshops for faculty, staff and graduate students, supports the AAES outlying/field research stations, and coordinates the AAES interdisciplinary research centers and institutes.
