The Community Collaborative Research Grant Program, or CCRG, is supported by North Carolina Sea Grant and the state’s Water Resources Research Institute, in partnership with the William R. Kenan Jr. Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science based at North Carolina State University.
The CCRG requires the use of a collaborative research approach that couples the knowledge of community stakeholders with academic experts in the field to address priority coastal issues that align with the mission and strategic plan of Sea Grant.
The Community Collaborative Research Grant Program is open and accepting proposals through 4 p.m. on Jan. 20, 2020.
