The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Gulf Research Program (GRP) will fund grants of $75,000 or more to support projects that engage children and youth in place-based educational activities. The GRP seeks to foster the development of the scientific and environmental skills, competencies, and capabilities that are critical to solving complex issues in the Gulf now and into the future.

The GRP will accept proposals from all nonprofit, state, and local entities, excluding federal agencies, which support educational, service, and/or coordination activities for children and youth in the K-8 grade range. In order to best serve the children and youth of the region, the GRP aims to limit the overhead charges on educational grants. As such, overhead charges for this grant opportunity cannot exceed a total of 20%. This limit also applies to subawardee budgets. Programmatic activities must occur in the United States Gulf of Mexico region.

Submissions are due by 5:00PM Eastern Time on March 29th, 2023.
