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, 2022. Proposals must be led by an investigator who is a faculty member or person with principal investigator status at their institution in the University of Wisconsin System, or other Wisconsin college or university. The process involves two steps:
- Prospective investigators submit a preproposal by 3 p.m. CST, Friday, January 15, 2021. See Guidelines for Preproposals in the Request for Proposals.
- Prospective investigators submit a full proposal by 3 p.m. CDT, Friday, April 30, 2021.
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 University of Wisconsin Sea Grant College Program). 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 at the bottom of the page.
Preproposals: 3 p.m., CST, Friday, January 15, 2021. You MUST submit a preproposal by this deadline to be eligible to submit a full proposal.
Full proposals: 3 p.m., CDT, Friday, April 30, 2021.
