Texas Sea Grant has released a Request for Proposals for its 2022-2024 Biennial Research competition, and pre-proposals are due Jan. 15, 2021. Through partnerships with the State of Texas and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Texas Sea Grant conducts a competitive research grant program every two years that draws on the expertise of the state’s top researchers.

Texas Sea Grant is seeking proposals from investigators at all Texas universities and colleges. Others eligible include: nonprofit, non-academic institutions; for-profit organizations; state, local and Indian tribal governments; and unaffiliated persons.

Awards will support outcome-oriented research that spans broad areas of natural, physical, social, behavioral and economic sciences and engineering; will improve the understanding, wise use and stewardship of Texas’ coastal and marine resources; and will generate substantial social, economic and environmental impacts in Texas.

Texas Sea Grant encourages research that will respond to one or more of the research priorities as stated in the Request for Research Proposals FY2022-2024, will achieve one or more of the focus area goals identified in the Texas Sea Grant Strategic Plan 2018-2023 and which has an end user identified.

Funded projects are selected using a competitive and rigorous peer-review process that considers the project’s potential to produce substantial and beneficial impacts to society and its ability to integrate research and extension efforts. The award period is Feb. 1, 2022 – Jan. 31, 2024.

Texas Sea Grant will host two pre-proposal webinars via Zoom on Dec. 15, 2020 and Dec. 18, 2020, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. No registration is required, and a recording will be posted when available. Attendees may join these webinars online at (Passcode: 171030).
