Pennsylvania Sea Grant solicits applied research project proposals on a biennial basis. The funding supports projects that span one to two-years in length. Awards range from $75,000 - $125,000 and require a 50-percent non-federal match (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 approval through the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and congressional appropriation of funds.  Faculty members and researchers from colleges and universities, agencies, and other Pennsylvania not-for-profit research organizations are eligible.
