West coast Sea Grant proposals sought

Four West Coast Sea Grant programs are seeking research proposals to address specific social science issues of West Coast regional priority. Projects will be selected through an open, competitive, peer-review process. Researchers must contact their state Sea Grant program directors to discuss ideas and linkages before submitting a letter of intent. Proposals must be submitted through Washington Sea Grant.

A total of $700,000 is available collectively at the regional level over two years to fund projects. In addition, the National Sea Grant Office may augment available state program funds. Given these funding limits, funding is anticipated for as many as four regional projects for the 2012–2014 biennium. For complete details, see the full RFP at www.csgc.ucsd.edu/FUNDING/APPLYING/RegionalSocialScience2011.html.
