2019 Michigan Sea Grant Request for Proposals

Michigan Sea Grant is soliciting proposals for innovative research projects for the 2020-2022 funding period. MISG sends out RFPs for research projects every two years. Research proposals are selected for funding through a competitive, peer-reviewed process. MISG requires researchers to submit a pre-proposal to be able to submit a full proposal. Review of the pre-proposal will provide feedback that will help proposals be more competitive under this RFP.

Special Joint Request for Proposals: Michigan, Illinois-Indiana, and Wisconsin

Understanding and Communicating Coastal Hydrodynamics and Nearshore Sediment Transport Processes on Lake Michigan to Promote Resilient Coastal Communities

The Lake Michigan Sea Grant programs, including Michigan Sea Grant, Wisconsin Sea Grant, and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant, seek integrated proposals to better understand coastal hydrodynamics and nearshore sediment transport processes on Lake Michigan, to help effectively communicate this information to promote sustainable shore protection, and to increase the integrity of beaches and stabilize bluffs. The result would be more resilient coastal communities and economies.


Michigan Sea Grant issues a request for proposals (RFP) every two years. The next RFP will be available in early 2019 for projects funded in 2020-2022.

Periodically, other RFPs will be announced as funds allow. Follow Michigan Sea Grant on social media or through the Upwellings newsletter for details about other RFP opportunities.
