The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation (NMSF) is now accepting pre-proposals for its 2015 Hollings Grants program. Pre-proposals are due Oct. 22, 2015.
In 2015, NMSF is looking for projects that:
- Engage the public in ocean issues and ocean conservation through National Marine Sanctuaries,
- Engage the public in efforts that support sustainable marine fisheries or the recovery of protected species, consistent with NOAA Fisheries mission, and
- Provide immersive educational experiences to 4th grade students in National Marine Sanctuaries or other public waters in support of President Obama’s “Every Kid in a Park” initiative.
Hollings Grants are awarded through a competitive process. The first step provides the opportunity for any eligible organization to submit a pre-proposal (due October 22, 2015). In the second step, a selection of applicants is invited to submit a full proposal for funding.
Complete criteria and eligibility requirements, as well as the template for submitting a pre-proposal, can be found on NMSF’s web site at www.marinesanctuary.org/hollings-grants. More information will be provided at a webinar hosted by NMSF on Wed., October 7th, from 3pm-4pm EDT. The link for the webinar is provided through the web link above as well. If you have any questions, please email or call Allison Alexander at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-608-3040, ext. 303.
