When OSG faculty seek outside grants, they should be guided by the following principles:

The work should:

  • Fall within the broad mandates of OSG and the national Sea Grant priority areas
  • Not jeopardize OSG position of non-advocacy
  • Not interfere with existing commitments to OSG funding sources
  • Be designed for sustainability beyond the short term
  • Not jeopardize the use of matching funds previously committed or needed for OSG’s omnibus plan or other funded projects.
