North Carolina Sea Grant’s deadline for full proposals. (Please note that North Carolina Sea Grant requires one week processing time for submitted full proposals to secure institutional approvals.)
To develop and refine early stage propagation strategies of aquaculture species to support on-going operations.
It is not a requirement that investigators, including the Primary Investigator, are part of the Sea Grant program; however, full proposals must be submitted with and through a Sea Grant program.
Full proposals must include funding (federal or match) for Sea Grant extension personnel as collaborators.
Industry stakeholder participation/involvement in projects is highly encouraged.
We also strongly encourage proposals from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and/or from members of traditionally underserved and underrepresented communities.
