The Maryland Sea Grant College (MDSG) seeks pre-proposals for its next funding cycle, February 1, 2014 - January 31, 2016. Research projects within Maryland's coasts and watersheds focused in three areas will be considered: 1) resilient ecosystem process and responses; 2) sustainable fisheries and aquaculture; and 3) resilient communities and economies. Additional funding opportunities exist for regional research that addresses specific joint priorities for Mid-Atlantic Sea Grant programs (MD, VA, DE, NC, NJ, NY, PA). This Request for Proposals (RFP) contains a listing of relevant research questions, a description of regional Sea Grant research opportunities, and information about the format and timetable for submitting pre-proposals and proposals. Both small-scale pilot studies and large interdisciplinary research projects will be considered. PIs should focus on outcomes that can be achieved in a 24-month period. Maryland Sea Grant is particularly interested in proposals that have a clear connection to the needs of management and policy and include a clear outreach plan for disseminating that information to targeted audiences. Maryland Sea Grant support is offered on an open, competitive basis.

The Maryland Sea Grant program (MDSG) focuses on supporting translational watershed, coastal and marine science that can inform broad audiences in the Chesapeake Bay region and Maryland's coastal areas. Maryland Sea Grant College has the ability to support small, targeted grants that come under the general category of program development awards. These awards are given by the Maryland Sea Grant College to help support important start-up efforts, or to offer strategic support to emerging areas of importance. Program development funds are designed to stimulate and foster small-scale innovative projects that will eventually lead to submissions for larger grants from a variety of sources. Also, these funds may be used to support workshops and educational opportunities that connect marine and coastal science to diverse audiences.
