Washington Sea Grant
2015 Request for Proposals

Funding cycle: February 1, 2016 – January 31, 2018

Washington Sea Grant (WSG) requests proposals for its next two-year funding cycle, which begins February 1, 2016. Investigators at academic, research and education institutions throughout the state of Washington are invited to apply for one- to two-year projects in two categories:

  1. Research projects contributing to WSG and state priority information needs and advancing knowledge in one of four focus areas: healthy coastal ecosystems; sustainable fisheries and aquaculture; resilient communities and economies; and ocean literacy and workforce development.
  2. Maritime workforce projects addressing identified maritime workforce capacity needs such as career pathway definition, curriculum and program development and innovative approaches for recruitment and training.

About $2 million will be awarded during the two-year funding cycle (February 1, 2016–January 31, 2018) through a competitive review process. Proposals must follow the guidance detailed in the 2015 Request for Proposals and be submitted through eSeaGrant, WSG’s online proposal submission system.
