Three aquaculture funding opportunities were recently released by the National Sea Grant Office, and as we have learned more, would like to share further thoughts with interested parties and potential applicants.
The Connecticut Sea Grant College Program has issued its call for preliminary proposals for the 2020-2022 Omnibus Funding Cycle for the funding period of Feb. 1, 2020 to Jan. 31, 2022. CTSG supports applied research in both natural and social sciences, education, and outreach activities to achieve healthy coastal and marine ecosystems and consequent public benefits, focusing on Connecticut, Long Island Sound and its watershed.
The Connecticut Sea Grant Arts Support Awards Program awards up to $1000 to an artist or group of artists through this competitive funding program. The winning submission will be selected on the basis of its aesthetic quality, relevance to coastal and marine environments and Connecticut Sea Grant themes, as well as its potential impact on non-traditional audiences.
Development or ″seed grants″ include start-up funds for small research and outreach projects, pilot studies, publications and conferences generally $5000 or less, typically in the range of $250-$3,000.
