National & Regional Strategic Investments

The National Sea Grant College Program administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has established a series of National (NSI) and Regional (RSI) Strategic Investments that complement the strategic objectives of the state Sea Grant Programs. NSIs have a national focus and are intended to enhance Sea Grant's network-wide capabilities (research and development, education, extension and outreach) to respond to high priority issues and opportunities. Projects are generally selected through annual national competitions.

Recent funding opportunities in this category include the NOAA Sea Grant Aquaculture Research Program NSI and the Social Science NSI.

NH Sea Grant will notify investigators about these opportunities when they are announced and will post the RFPs on our website.

See the National Sea Grant website for more information about NSI and RSI funding.
