MASGC requests pre-proposals for research funding

The Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium (MASGC) is accepting pre-proposals for one- or two-year innovative research projects that address coastal issues.

Pre-proposals in the 2014-2016 research funding competition must apply to at least one MASGC focus area (healthy coastal ecosystems, sustainable fisheries and aquaculture or resilient communities and economies). Funding requests of no more than $75,000 are recommended. A 50-percent non-federal match is required for all projects.

The deadline for pre-proposals is Feb. 22, 2013.
