Texas Sea Grant’s Biennial Research Competition

Texas Sea Grant’s competitive research program allows marine and coastal scientists from universities across the state to address issues of critical importance to the State of Texas, the Gulf of Mexico and the nation.

Every two years, Texas Sea Grant awards almost $1 million in research grants through a rigorous, peer-reviewed selection process. Researchers affiliated with any Texas institution of higher education are welcome to apply. Projects are chosen for their alignment with Texas Sea Grant’s strategic goals, and all are expected to include public engagement to ensure that the results of innovative science are put to practical use. The research priorities in each biennial grant competition are determined through Texas Sea Grant’s strategic planning process so they may best address the state and region’s current and future needs.

The Request for Research Proposals is typically issued in the Fall/early Winter of even-numbered years.

The Texas Sea Grant College Program had an overwhelming response to our FY2020-2022 Request for Research Proposals, receiving 120 Pre-proposals!

Notifications will be sent to the PIs by April 22, 2019. Blinded review comments will be sent under separate email the week of April 22, 2019.
