Wisconsin Sea Grant 2020-22 Omnibus Funding

Preproposal deadline is 3 p.m., CST, Friday, January 11, 2019

The University of Wisconsin Sea Grant College Program is inviting research and education project proposals for the next two-year grant period that begins February 1, 2020. The process involves two steps:

  1. Prospective investigators submit a preproposal by 3 p.m. CST, Friday, January 11, 2019. See Guidelines for Preproposals in the Request for Proposals.
  2. Prospective investigators submit a full proposal by 3 p.m. CDT, Friday, April 26, 2019.

To be eligible to submit a full proposal, applicants MUST submit a preproposal by the preproposal deadline. All Sea Grant project funds are awarded via a highly competitive process involving external peer reviews and the recommendations of external technical and advisory panels.

Submission of preproposals will be via eDrop, a Web-based proposal submission site hosted by the University of Wisconsin Aquatic Sciences Center (administrative home of the Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute). Prior to entering your preproposal in eDrop you need to fill in a Microsoft Word-based preproposal template and CV template. Those templates and full instructions on submitting a preproposal are available now by clicking on the links below.
