The next request for preliminary proposals will be released late in 2020, for research to be conducted between February 2022 and January 2024. We seek creative and innovative research proposals in the natural, social, and education sciences that address one or more of the following focus areas:

  • Healthy Coastal Ecosystems
  • Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture
  • Resilient Communities and Economies
  • Environmental Literacy and Workforce Development

As an example, you can reference our previous Announcement of Funding Opportunity for 2020–2022.
