CLOSED. Next RFP is anticipated for 2019.
Woods Hole Sea Grant (WHSG) biennially requests proposals for projects from investigators at academic, research and education institutions throughout the state of Massachusetts. Assuming no changes in the federal Sea Grant appropriation and the requirements of the non-research components of the WHSG program, an estimated $900,000 will be available to support research projects over the two-year funding period. Total two-year requests should not exceed $200,000 in Sea Grant funds (including all direct and indirect costs). Woods Hole Sea Grant is administered at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, but the research competition is open to faculty and staff at any public or private research or higher education institution, usually those based in the state of Massachusetts. Funded projects will contribute to WHSG and Massachusetts priority information needs and advance knowledge in one of four focus areas: healthy coastal ecosystems; sustainable fisheries and aquaculture; resilient communities and economies; and ocean literacy and workforce development.
