Deadline for the Notice to Submit to North Carolina Sea Grant and to the National Sea Grant Office. Please see the instructions below.
Thursday, January 20, 2021
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.)
Develop and refine reproduction/broodstock and/or nursery strategies enabling the reliable production of sufficient quantities of juvenile marine finfish 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.
