Overview:

Oregon Sea Grant provides competitive and noncompetitive funding opportunities for university-based researchers who seek to address questions about our oceans, coastlines and their natural and human communities. Projects often involve collaboration among scientists from public and private agencies, and from other parts of the region or the world. Primary funding comes from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, as authorized and appropriated by the US Congress.

Oregon Sea Grant is a catalyst that promotes discovery, understanding, and resilience for Oregon coastal communities and ecosystems.

Activity and Conference Support Process

Requests for funds can be made on an as-needed basis; please allow 60 days for review and support determination.
