Washington Sea Grant (WSG) is currently requesting proposals for one- to two-year projects from investigators at academic, research, and education institutions throughout Washington. WSG is seeking to fund projects that align with one of four focus areas: healthy coastal ecosystems; sustainable fisheries and aquaculture; resilient communities and economies; and ocean literacy and workforce development. WSG expects that eight to ten projects will be selected for the 2020-2021 funding cycle. Proposals may request annual budgets up to $140,000 for a total project cap of $280,000, and a 50 percent non-federal cost share or match is required. Investigators may apply for a graduate research fellow to participate in their research project.

WSG will host an Outreach Workshop to brief potential PIs on the Sea Grant program on February 7, 2019Preliminary proposals must be received by 5:00 p.m. PST on February 27.
