Funding Opportunities

Maine Sea Grant Biennial Request for Proposals

CLOSED. Full proposals were due Monday 10 June 2019, 4:30 PM.

We anticipate an estimated $600,000 will be available to support research projects over the two-year funding period. Maine Sea Grant will consider funding proposals up to $150,000. Maine Sea Grant intends to fund as many excellent proposals as is possible; projects with requested funding below the maximum amount and those that show strong leveraging of funding are encouraged. Total two-year requests over $150,000 in Sea Grant funds (including all direct and indirect costs) will not be considered. Proposed research must show 50% non-federal match at the preliminary proposal stage, including source and level of available non-federal match. Proposals without sufficient match will not be considered.
