Maine Sea Grant 2016-2017 Request for Proposals

Preliminary proposal deadline: 4:30 p.m., EST, Friday 27 February 2015

The Maine Sea Grant College Program invites full proposals for research projects to be funded in the period February 2016 through January 2018. Through our biennial request for proposals, we strive to sponsor a diverse research portfolio that links the scientific capacity of Maine with the needs of coastal stakeholders. 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 $450,000 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.
