North Carolina Sea Grant Research Opportunity for Resource Management Needs

Funding Agency:
North Carolina Sea Grant

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 topics in each request for proposals will be selected through discussions with directors of various agencies, review of the state’s Coastal Habitat Protection Plan, and consideration of the Sea Grant funding available in a given year.

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.

Deadline: Oct. 7, 2019
