What’s New for 2018

Engagement Strategy:
Strong links to communities and stakeholders are expected of all proposals, regardless of the type of study. Proposals for research engaging or impacting Alaskan communities are encouraged to include a letter of support from the appropriate local or tribal governing bodies at the time of submission. All funded projects will be expected to have at least one team member participate in a communications workshop at the Alaska Marine Science Symposium.

Outreach Awards:
Research proposals selected for funding under this call will be invited to apply for up to $20,000 to support outreach-specific efforts. Notification of this opportunity will be provided after Board recommendations for Core Program proposal funding in May 2018. Learn more about NPRB supporting outreach by clicking here.
