NH Sea Grant Request for Proposals

N.H. Sea Grant welcomes proposals for Program Development Funds at any time. Decisions regarding development funds are made on a discretionary basis by the N.H. Sea Grant Executive Committee and depend on available funds. 

Does my research fit with the N.H. Sea Grant Program funding goals?

The guiding philosophy for N.H. Sea Grant is to serve the state and region by supporting innovative and cutting-edge research integrated with expert extension, outreach and education to support dialog and science-based decision-making in areas of particular importance to our region. To meet our organizational mission, we seek to foster and support the highest quality research in marine and coastal sciences, social science and education.

Research proposals should address one or more of the program goals identified in the 2014-2017 N.H. Sea Grant Strategic Plan under our four Focus Areas of Environmental Literacy and Workforce Development, Healthy Coastal Ecosystems, Resilient Communities and Economies, and Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture. The N.H. Sea Grant Strategic Plan provides specific guidance on goals for research, extension and education. Investigators writing research proposals should read the Strategic Plan carefully and consider how their proposed project aligns with the goals of NHSG. All proposed research should contribute to improved understanding, utilization and/or management of coastal and marine resources.

Successful proposals will clearly identify end users of the resulting research, and robust engagement activities will be a requirement for all proposals. Thus, we strongly recommend that researchers seek to work with Sea Grant extension specialists and educators as early as possible to ensure their input is integrated into proposals from the beginning. See some tips for including extension into your research.
