In 1990, Mr. Everett W. Byrd, a Bladen County peanut farmer, established an endowment for “the purpose of enhancing the teaching, research and public service functions of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at North Carolina State University.”
Mr. and Mrs. Byrd requested that the funds from the endowment be used for peanut research.
Please submit one copy of your proposal in a format similar to that for commodity proposals.
Email the proposal to Cindy Conyers (919-515-2717) by the second Friday in April. Proposals may be submitted as a Word document attached to the e-mail message.
The North Carolina Agricultural Foundation agreed to provide the family information each year on how the funds are used, so a progress report is necessary by the end of the award year.
