Washington Sea Grant (WSG) requests proposals for one- to two-year research projects from investigators at academic and research institutions throughout the state of Washington. Funded projects will contribute to WSG and state priority information needs by advancing knowledge in one of four focus areas: healthy coastal ecosystems, sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, resilient communities and economies, and ocean literacy and workforce development.
WSG collaborates with international, federal, tribal, state and local governments, local communities and businesses, and people from academia, K-12 schools and nongovernmental organizations on a wide variety of marine related research, engagement, education and communication projects. Project principal investigators (PIs) must be affiliated with a university, two- or four-year college, museum, research laboratory or other nonprofit or tribal institution in Washington State. Project co-principal investigators (Co-PIs) may be affiliated the above-listed Washington institutions, institutions outside of Washington, state and federal agencies or for-profit or foreign organizations.
