The Marine Sciences Research Grant Committee is currently soliciting applications for research support for funds beginning January 1, 2018.
The next deadline for submission of applications is October 13, 2017. Applications received after October 13, 2017 will be returned to the applicant without exception. If you miss this deadline, the next deadline will be January 12, 2018.
PDF and Word versions of the application are available on this page. Applications must be typewritten and completed in full. Incomplete or undocumented applications will be deferred to the Committee's next regularly scheduled meeting.
To apply, combine your completed application and supporting documents into a single PDF document and return it via email to email@example.com.
Please contact Michelle Null (firstname.lastname@example.org, extension x42130) if you have any questions.
Academic Senate members or Research Scientists in all fields are eligible to apply for individual research grants. Project Scientists are eligible for Travel to Scholarly Meetings only, subject to exception of policy.
Research proposals submitted to the Marine Sciences Research Grant Committee should not exceed $15,000. Joint proposals should not exceed $15,000 per qualified applicant. Funds are not discretionary; justification of all items requested is essential. Awards which would result in cumulative support beyond $45,000 over a ten year period are unlikely.
Currently only proposals falling into one of the following three priority areas will be considered:
Applications must explicitly explain and document why and how the proposed work fits into one of the above categories.
Expenditures of research grant funds must conform to the Committee allocations by categories and purpose. Savings in any category cannot be redirected and must be returned for redistribution; grantee's 10-year cumulative total will be credited.
The grantee is responsible for the administration of the grant, any overdrafts, and must review the budget and return to the Committee promptly any funds that will not be spent before the grant expires. Funds not expended by the end date will automatically revert to the Committee for redistribution.
Any equipment purchased from an Academic Senate research grant becomes the property of the University upon acquisition and reverts to the University upon completion of the project for which the funds were awarded.
All expenditures are subject to applicable University regulations. Policy and Procedure Manual References:
Any unexpended balances returned to the Committee prior to the expiration date of the grant will be credited towards the grantee's ten-year cumulative total.
