Sea Grant announces new Research to Application Award

By: Melissa Schneider / Published: Feb 19,  2010

The National Sea Grant College Program is accepting nominations for its new Research to Application Award, which recognizes a researcher or research team for the successful and continued real-world application of Sea Grant-funded research.

If you know of a project funded by the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium during the last 20 years that is deserving of this award, notify MASGC Director LaDon Swann at swanndl@auburn.edu or 251-648-5877 to discuss the project’s impacts. Written nominations should not be more than 10 single-sided pages and should demonstrate how research is being applied in a non-academic setting. Details about nomination requirements are available upon request.

MASGC will gather nominations and forward them to the Sea Grant Association’s Program Mission Committee (PMC). A subcommittee will determine the award recipient from nominations received through the 32 Sea Grant programs.

The deadline for nominations to MASGC is Monday, April 26. The award winner will be notified no later than July 15.

The Sea Grant Association and award recipient’s local Sea Grant program will provide the winner with travel support and lodging to accept the award during Sea Grant Week, which will be held Oct. 16-20 in New Orleans.
