Any professorial faculty who have at least 0.2 FTE paid for by Agricultural Experiment Station (AES) funds is required to join one of these projects.

If you’re not sure if this requirement applies to you, please contact your unit leader or reach out to our AES staff at aesresearch@oregonstate.edu.



For OSU Hatch collaborative research projects, see this list.


For Multistate research projects, you can search NIMSS from the homepage using keywords.



Put simply, these projects have two requirements:

  1. Annual project reporting
  2. Acknowledgement of USDA-NIFA funding

For more details about these requirements, see the Hatch and Hatch Multistate Research Manual.



The Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station (OAES) provides up to $1,200 in travel support funds for qualifying faculty.


To find out whether you qualify, see our Multistate travel policy.


How to access these funds varies by project/activity type. To find out where to start, take a look at this tip sheet.



Broadly speaking, our Hatch and Hatch Multistate funding is only used to fund a portion of faculty salaries.


The exception to this are:

  • Travel support funds for Multistate projects/activities. These funds are only authorized for travel expenses related to the traveler's own participation in the project/activity's annual meeting.
  • OSU Hatch collaborative project team funds. For more information on allowable expenses on these funds, see the project team funds policy document.



It may be answered in our manual, which includes more detailed information on the topics we cover in the FAQs, as well as others. We will continue to expand the FAQs, so your question may soon be answered here.

If you can't find your answer in any of the resources on this website, please reach out to aesresearch@oregonstate.edu and we'll do what we can to help.
