The University of Hawaii Sea Grant College Program is requesting preliminary proposals for funding available beginning February 1, 2012 and ending January 31, 2014. The deadline for applications is January 19, 2011.

UH Sea Grant is one of 32 Sea Grant Programs dedicated to improved understanding and stewardship of the Nation's marine and coastal resources. Created by Congress in 1966, the National Sea Grant College Program comprises a network of more than 300 participating institutions, drawing on the talents of over 3,000 scientists, engineers, educators, students, and outreach specialists nationwide.

Sea Grant supports an integrated program of applied research, outreach, and education addressing marine and
coastal issues of public concern. Information generated by UH Sea Grant-funded research reaches stakeholders via UH Sea Grant extension, education and communications activities.

To receive consideration, preliminary proposals are due electronically via the UH Sea Grant proposal submission website, eProjects (http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/eProjects/logn/logn_login.php) no later than 5:00 pm (Hawai‘i Standard Time), Wednesday, January 19, 2011. eProjects will begin accepting preliminary proposals on Wednesday, December 1, 2010. Principal investigators are encouraged to submit electronically via eProjects well prior to the deadline to avoid delays associated with heavy internet traffic during the day on which proposals are due.
