Reporting Guidelines

Reporting guidelines

Reports are a required condition upon accepting Sea Grant funds. These reports are vital to convey the achievements of your projects to NOAA-National Sea Grant, state, local, and other sponsors and, when appropriate, to the general public.

Online progress and final reports

Annual online progress reports: These reports are due one month (23 days) after the completion of each 12-month grant period.

Final online report: This is due two months (60 days) after the project end date.

Reports are submitted using the electronic form via the button in the upper right. Have the following information available before you fill in the online reporting form:

  • Changes in objective, methodology, and rationale
  • Accomplishments/findings to date
  • Benefits
  • Presentations (including number of attendees)
  • Significant interactions with other agencies
  • Media contacts
  • Students supported (including undergraduate and graduate students)
  • Publications (including journal articles or outreach materials)

Final narrative report

In addition to the online progress reports, Michigan Sea Grant research projects are required to complete a final narrative report. This must be submitted before the project end date so that Michigan Sea Grant can facilitate a peer review process. Additional details will be provided to funded research teams.
