Alaska Sea Grant research funding
As part of our mission of service to Alaska's coastal communities, Alaska Sea Grant supports original, peer-reviewed research projects on a two-year cycle. A Request for Proposals is normally issued in October or November of each even-numbered year, for two-year projects to begin early in the next even-numbered year.
Occasional special funding opportunities may also arise. If you would like to be on our mailing list for research announcements, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alaska Sea Grant program development and rapid response funding
Limited funds for "program development and rapid response" may be available between normal funding cycles. These funds allow us to take advantage of unforeseen and time-limited opportunities:
- to stimulate new areas of research
- to stimulate new areas of investment by other funding sources and/or stakeholders
- to respond quickly to new issues and opportunities
- to accommodate "transition" problems such as temporary funding gaps in critical ongoing projects
Prior to submitting a request for funds, please discuss your ideas with Alaska Sea Grant Director David Christie.
If funds are available and your request meets current priorities, you will be asked to submit a 1- to 2-page written request that includes a project description, a justification of the need for development funds, and a budget outline. A response will normally be provided within 1–2 weeks of this submission.
Each year, the National Sea Grant Program (NSG) provides a variety of competitive funding opportunities for specific coastal and marine research. These are posted at the Sea Grant Requests for Proposals page. National Sea Grant proposals are typically administered by the state Sea Grant College. Questions are welcome.
