Maine Sea Grant 2018-2019 Request for Proposals

Maine Sea Grant 2018-2019 Biennial Request For Proposals

Preliminary proposal deadline: 4:30 p.m., EST, Friday 24 February 2017

The Maine Sea Grant College Program invites preliminary proposals for research and synthesis projects to be funded in the period February 2018 through January 2020. Through this new request, we seek proposals of two separate categories. First, we seek to fund research proposals that link the scientific capacity of Maine with the needs of coastal stakeholders. Secondly, we aim to support synthesis efforts that will integrate knowledge from diverse sources to summarize our current understanding of coastal Maine issues, identify gaps in knowledge, and outline future research directions. Synthesis efforts should not include the collection of new data. Assuming no changes in the federal Sea Grant appropriation and the requirements of the non-research components of the Maine Sea Grant program, an estimated $750,000 will be available to support research projects over the two-year funding period. Total two year requests are limited to $150,000 in Sea Grant funds (including all direct and indirect costs). Maine Sea Grant is administered by the University of Maine, but the research competition is open to faculty and staff at any public or private research or higher education institution in the state.
