The Special Project Announcement for the FY 2019 Undergraduate Population and Ecosystem Dynamics Workshop Competition has been released. This competition is to host one or more workshops between October 1, 2019 and September 30, 2020.
The Special Project Announcement is posted at: https://seagrant.noaa.gov/insideseagrant/Funding-Opportunities. Applications are due January 23, 2019.
The purpose of the proposed undergraduate workshop program is to introduce and recruit students into the field of Population and Ecosystem Dynamics.
Please distribute this announcement widely.
NOAA’s goal is to rotate the workshop cooperative agreement regionally, based on the states and territories covered by the NMFS’ Science Centers. The annual rotation of host programs ensures geographic balance and diversity of expertise for this as a workforce development training program. In FY 2018, Oregon Sea Grant, located in the region of the NMFS Northwest Fisheries Science Center (Northwest FSC), was awarded the FY 2019 Undergraduate PED Workshop. This FY 2019 Special Projects Announcement, to host the FY 2020 Undergraduate PED Workshop(s), is eligible for applicants from all regions, with the exception of Oregon and Washington Sea Grant, the region of the Northwest FSC.
