Pre-proposals for applied research projects are being solicited by the Pennsylvania Sea Grant College Program. Funding will support one- or two-year projects that begin February 1, 2018 and end by January 31, 2019 or 2020. It is anticipated that from seven to ten grants of $50,000 - $125,000 each will be awarded.  A 50-percent non-federal match is required (one non-federal dollar for every two federal dollars requested).  Funding requests for one-year projects may not exceed $75,000 and requests for two-year projects may not exceed $125,000. Funding is contingent upon NOAA approval and congressional appropriation of funds.  Faculty members and researchers from colleges and universities, agencies, and other Pennsylvania not-for-profit research organizations are eligible.
