Grants to New York faculty members affiliated with institutions of higher education and other entities for environmental research studies. Funding is intended to support scientific research projects that lead to information that will promote the sustainable use, development, protection, conservation, and management of the State's coastal resources. NYSG supports research on marine, Hudson River estuary, and Great Lakes (and Great Rivers—Niagara and St. Lawrence) topics and issues.
Projects can consist of developmental work on new methods, models, tools, techniques, state-of-knowledge synthesis efforts, and hypothesis-driven experimental work. The proposed research must show an understanding of what constitutes necessary and sufficient information for responsible decision-making or for applied use and will be expected to generate actionable results. A successful Sea Grant project would provide information or tools that will assist resource managers, communities, and other stakeholders to make decisions or plans regarding coastal resources and environments.
Pre-proposals are invited specifically addressing portions of NYSG’s Strategic Plan for 2018-2023. However, the results of these projects should also be relevant to regional or national needs and be consistent with the program priorities for the National Sea Grant College Program as contained in the National Network 2018-2023 Strategic Plan.
Research in many disciplines, including biology, chemistry, geology, physical oceanography, engineering, social science, and others, will be appropriate. Additionally, a project must have sufficient intellectual content and scientific rigor to make it appropriate for university research. The need, significance, products, applicability, target audience (beyond other academics), and expected impact of the research must be clearly anticipated and described. These will be key factors in the review process.
