The Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium (MASGC) is accepting preproposals for one- or two-year innovative research projects that address coastal issues.
Proposals in the 2010-2011 research funding competition must apply to at least one MASGC focus area (healthy coastal ecosystems, sustainable coastal development or a safe, sustainable seafood supply). There are two levels of maximum funding: $50,000 per year and $150,000 per year. A 50-percent non-federal match is required for all projects.
The deadline for pre-proposals is 4 p.m. Feb. 23, 2009.
