North Carolina Sea Grant Research Opportunity for Resource Management Needs
North Carolina Sea Grant has a special program to fund research proposals designed to meet key needs identified by state agencies that manage natural resources.
The focus areas identified in this Request for Proposals (RFP) were chosen based on correspondence with agency directors, research needs identified by the state’s Coastal Habitat Protection Plan, and NC Sea Grant funding levels available to support this opportunity.
Deadline: Dec. 4, 2023
Areas of Interest
Focus areas this year include:
- Blue crab
- Other Shellfish (scallops, clams, shrimp)
Projects must be led by an academic faculty member principal investigator. Principal
investigators (PI) must be from an accredited North Carolina-based University/College. Each PI
is allowed only one submission. There is no limitation on Co-investigator affiliation. Co-
investigators can be on multiple submissions. Partnerships with local knowledge experts are
encouraged. Out-of-State Co-investigators are allowable, but the majority of the project’s
funding should remain within North Carolina. Investigators with incomplete reporting from
previous NC Sea Grant-funded opportunities are not eligible to apply.
Researchers can request up to $60,000 from Sea Grant for one-year projects. Matching funds are encouraged but not required. No indirect costs may be included in the budgets.
