Appropriate Acknowledgment of Your NIFA Award

The Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI), formerly the National Research Initiative (NRI), plays an essential role in fulfilling the mission of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture. Proper acknowledgment of your USDA-NIFA-AFRI funding in published manuscripts, presentations, press releases, and other communications is critical for the success of our agency’s programs. This includes proper acknowledgment of the program and agency, as well as that of the Department and grant number.

We expect you to use the following language to acknowledge NIFA support, as appropriate:

“This project was supported by Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Competitive Grant no. XXX-XXXXX-XXXXX from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.”

We also expect that you will use our agency’s official identifier in all of your slide and poster presentations resulting from your AFRI award.

Please alert us of significant findings, publications, news releases, and other media coverage of your work. With your permission, we may highlight your project in a National Impact story or News Release. If your research is featured on the cover of a scientific journal, we can showcase the cover as well. Examples of these publications can be found in our Newsroom.
