NH Sea Grant Releases Biennial Request for Proposals

NH Sea Grant Releases Biennial Request for Proposals

Jan 25, 2013

Every two years, N.H. Sea Grant issues an RFP for those seeking major (≤ $100k per year) funding for research projects. During 2013, the program will be reviewing proposals for one- or two-year research funding during 2014-2015 (funding period February 1, 2014 – January 31, 2016).  Sea Grant is a matching funds program, which requires that at least 50% of the aggregate federal dollars received be matched by state or private funds ($1 of match for every $2 of requested federal Sea Grant funds).

Preliminary proposals must be submitted electronically by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, February 25, 2013.

Invited full project proposals will be due by 5:00 p.m. June 3, 2013.

Who can apply?

Faculty and researchers with principal investigator status at any institution of higher education and research in New Hampshire are eligible to apply for funding through N.H. Sea Grant.

Does my research fit with the N.H. Sea Grant Program funding goals?

The guiding philosophy for N.H. Sea Grant is to serve the state and region by supporting innovative and cutting-edge research integrated with expert extension, outreach and education to support dialog and science-based decision-making in areas of particular importance to our region. To meet our organizational mission, we seek to foster and support the highest quality research in marine science, social science and education.

Research proposals should address one or more of the program goals identified in the 2014-2017 N.H. Sea Grant Strategic Plan under our four Focus Areas of Environmental Literacy and Workforce Development, Healthy Coastal Ecosystems, Resilient Communities and Economies, and Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture. The N.H. Sea Grant Strategic Plan provides specific guidance on goals for research, extension and education. Investigators writing research proposals should read the Strategic Plan carefully and consider how their proposed project aligns with the goals of NHSG. All proposed research should contribute to improved understanding, utilization and/or management of coastal and marine resources.

We strongly recommend that researchers seek to work with and integrate Sea Grant extension specialists and educators into their projects, as robust extension activities will be a requirement for all proposals.
