Florida Sea Grant supports the work of scientists and researchers in a wide variety of disciplines from institutions around the state. Below are some available funding opportunities.
To qualify for this funding opportunity, investigators must meaningfully partner with a state Sea Grant program’s aquaculture, economic or extension specialist. Please contact Charles Sidman email@example.com (352) 392-5870 for information on Florida Sea Grant affiliated faculty or extension specialists who could participate on proposed projects.
Letters of intent (LOI) are due by 5PM EDT on February 26, 2020. Letters of intent must be submitted to both NOAA National Sea Grant Program and the state Sea Grant program, which will review LOI and submit full proposals to the National Sea Grant Program on behalf of the investigators.
Importantly: Full proposals are due to Florida Sea Grant by April 1, 2020, to provide the necessary time for Florida Sea Grant to process paperwork and submit full proposals to the National Sea Grant Office by the April 22 deadline.
We strongly encourage investigators to contact Rod Venegas (firstname.lastname@example.org (352) 392-5870) with financial and budget information well in advance of the April 1, 2020 Florida Sea Grant deadline for full proposals.
Please read the call instructions carefully prior to the submittal of LOI and full proposals so that your project meets all of the qualification criteria.
This opportunity opens as funds are available.
Program Development (PD) funds allow Florida Sea Grant (FSG) faculty to address timely coastal and ocean issues that cannot be anticipated during the year-long process of developing Annual Project proposals in the biennial grant period. PD funding also may support demonstrations essential to coastal user groups, pilot research studies or the transfer of information via workshops or other venues. Program Development projects are of short duration, low budget and yield a definitive result specifically tied to the circumstances that motivate the project.
