Maine Sea Grant
06/03/19 4:30 PM EDT
Grants to Maine IHEs, private or public research facility staff and faculty for research in marine science and education. An initial proposal must be submitted prior to the full application. Funding is intended to promote the use of research in the areas of management, sustainable development, and preservation of coastal and marine resources.
The mission of Maine Sea Grant is to play a leadership role in marine science and education in Maine and to promote their use for the sustainable development, management, and stewardship of marine and coastal resources. Through its biennial request for proposals, the funding source strives to sponsor a diverse research portfolio that links the scientific capacity of Maine with the needs of coastal stakeholders.
Maine Sea Grant seeks to foster the highest quality marine research with a strong likelihood of societal impact in Maine, so only the most creative and rigorously conceived proposals will receive consideration. The funding source seeks to support projects developed through meaningful engagement with coastal or marine stakeholders and focused on research questions that are responsive to the needs of Maine’s communities. The funding source accepts proposals aligned with any part of its current strategic plan. The funding source also strongly encourages projects that will advance Maine’s capacity for adaptive coastal resource management and public policy in response to climate-driven ecosystem change.
Maine Sea Grant intends to fund as many excellent proposals as is possible within budgetary constraints; projects with smaller requests and those that show strong leveraging of Sea Grant funding are encouraged.
Maine Sea Grant Strategic Goals & Objectives:
Maine Sea Grant requests competitive research proposals that align with the strategic goals, integrate across Sea Grant’s functional areas of research, education, and outreach (extension and communications), and display a strong promise for meaningful societal impact and application. Collaborations with industry, state and regional agencies, and other research institutions are encouraged. All proposals must clearly identify how the proposed research applies to one (or more) of the strategic goals and objectives. Investigators are encouraged to explicitly describe how understanding, tools, and data products generated in their projects will lead to measurable progress toward these priorities.
