The USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC) and Alaska, South Central, and Southwest Department of the Interior Climate Science Centers (CSCs) are seeking Statements of Interest (SOIs) for research project funding in Fiscal Year (YR) 2017.
SOIs are invited for projects that support regional NCCWSC/CSC science priorities. CSC funded projects cover a variety of topics that address the impacts of climate change on fish, wildlife, ecosystems, and the communities they support.
The deadline for submission of Statements of Interest is January 18, 2017.
Only the following may submit proposals in response to this funding oppurtunity: Institutions that are either Host Institutions or Consortium Members for the requesting DOI Climate Science Center (excpetions are made for projects spanning multiple CSC regions- these should be submitted to all CSCs of interest) and USGS centers, field stations, laboratories, Cooperative Research Units, etc.
Each proposal must have a Principal Investigator (PI) from an eligible institution. Parties from other organizations (Federal, State, Tribal, or other) can participate and receive funds via sub-award from the Principal Investigator but the proposal submitter and PI must be from an eligible applicant, as described above. Non-eligible applicants are encouraged to establish working partnerships with one of the recognized eligible applicants to seek participation as part of a project lead by a CSC/university consortium member or USGS facility.
