The Oregon Sea Grant Program invites preliminary proposals for research on important marine and coastal issues from researchers who are affiliated with any institution of higher education. Proposals will be entered into a highly competitive review and selection process. Proposed work may begin on either February 1, 2014, or February 1, 2015. Available funding is set by the NOAA Sea Grant Program based on congressional appropriations.
Pre-proposals are reviewed by external scientists, a citizen advisory board and the Oregon Sea Grant Leadership to ensure that they match the priorities and goals set forth in our strategic plan. Based on these evaluations, OSG will issue invitations for full proposals. Full proposals undergo independent external mail reviews as well as science panel and citizen advisory panel reviews of both scientific excellence and societal relevance.
Date due for preliminary proposals: February 15, 2013
