Deadline for submission of Statements of Interest is 28 January 2011.  This email has been distributed to all faculty/staff.

This is a solicitation from the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program for Statements of Interest proposing two-year coastal research projects.  The Statement of Interest serves as a project pre-proposal that identifies a topic relevant to coastal and marine needs in Louisiana and the nation. It describes both the scope of the need, problem, or opportunity and how the results achieved would contribute to development, conservation, or utilization of coastal and marine resources. Statements allow for review of concepts, rationale, general approach, and expected outcomes and impacts before faculty must commit to providing a narrative of detailed methodology, literature review, and other requirements of a full proposal.


1. Priority Focus Areas are: 1) Healthy Coastal Ecosystems, 2) Sustainable Coastal Development, 3) Safe and Sustainable Seafood Supply, and 4) Hazard Resilience in Coastal Communities. We strongly suggest that you access a complete explanation of these priorities and their attendant Goals and Strategies at Louisiana Sea Grant Strategic Plan 2009-2013.


2. Proposals must be strong in scientific and professional merit, rationale and user relationships. Other criteria apply.


3. 50% match is required for all awards.


4. Faculty may participate in a maximum of two Statements of Interest. Listing as Principal Investigator, Co-Principal Investigator, or Associate Investigator counts as participation.


Size of Grant Awards


We will entertain Statements of Interest with maximum budgets of $90,000/year for either one or two year projects.  Occasionally projects that are evaluated highly, but fall just below the cutoff for full funding, can be supported at a reduced scope and cost with Program Development funds.


A fully completed and signed Statement of Interest, in either hard copy or PDF format, must be submitted to Ms. Katie Lea (Room 238 Sea Grant Building, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA 70803 or klea@lsu.edu) by 4:00 PM on Friday, 28 January 2011 without exception.


Please go to Funding and Proposal Information 2012-2014 for complete information on Statement of Interest content specifications, appropriate forms, and submission procedures.  Contact me if you either encounter problems or have questions regarding the Statement of Interest.

Best regards,

Dave Nieland

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have released the FY 2011 Research Announcement for the NASA Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). Each funded NASA EPSCoR proposal is expected to establish research activities that will make significant contributions to the strategic research and technology development priorities of one or more of NASA’s four Mission Directorates—Aeronautics Research, Exploration Systems, Science, and Space Operations—, the Office of the Chief Technologist (OCT), and NASA’s ten Centers and contribute to the overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities, higher education, and economic development of the proposing jurisdiction.

Public Law 102-58, passed in 1992, authorized NASA to initiate NASA EPSCoR to strengthen the research capability of jurisdictions that have not in the past participated equably in competitive aerospace research activities. The National Science Foundation (NSF) determines overall jurisdiction eligibility for NASA EPSCoR.   The following NASA EPSCoR jurisdictions may respond to this NASA EPSCoR solicitation: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.  Jurisdictions responding to this CAN may submit up to two proposals.

This solicitation may be accessed through the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES) at http://nspires.nasaprs.com.

The EPSCoR Travel Grants for Emerging Faculty (TGEF) Program through the Louisiana Board of Regents provides funds to tenure-track (not tenured) faculty in science or engineering for travel to funding agencies to visit with program managers or to give major, invited presentations.  Faculty in the following disciplines can apply:

  • Biological sciences (all)
  • Mathematical & computer sciences
  •  Earth & environmental sciences (Geology, Oceanography, Environmental)
  • Engineering (all)
  •  Physical sciences (Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics)
  • Social & behavioral sciences

Speaking with a program officer can provide insight on the proposal structure, the peer review process, and the focus of the agency; this can make your proposal more competitive.  An opportunity to make a presentation can make you more known in your field and open other doors for your career.  TGEF funding can pay for most or all of the expenses related to these trips which is important with the cuts in general fund budgets.

The awards are limited to $1,200 for travel expenses and the expenses must follow state travel guidelines.  Up to  $1,200 can also be obtained for the travel expense of a mentor that accompanies the faculty on the trip.

For more information on the program and the application process, please refer to the attached Request for Application.  The overall deadline for applications is June 30, 2015.  However, your application must be submitted at least 30 days prior to your proposed trip.

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 280-6836 or send an email to stateORSP@uno.edu.

This was sent to all faculty and staff.
