NURP Funding

As one of six NURP Centers under the auspices of NOAA's Undersea Research Program (NURP) (www.nurp.noaa.gov), the Caribbean Marine Research Center (Caribbean Marine Research Center) at the Perry Institute for Marine Science is presently soliciting proposals for undersea research in the Caribbean region for FY2006. The present announcement is soliciting pre-proposals for three specific funding opportunities:

  • 1) NURP funds for one to two year projects focusing on NOAA/NURP research priorities under the research theme of Examinations of the effectiveness of 'no-take' marine protected areas to be initiated in 2006
  • 2) NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program (NCRCP) funds for one to two year projects (with one year preferred) that address the following priority research needs for the U.S. Caribbean: overfishing, pollution, coral disease and bleaching, and invasive species, and the impact of these stressors on coral reef ecosystems. The evaluation of management effectiveness is also encouraged. Note that there is requirement of 100% non-federal match for these funds
  • 3) University of Puerto Rico's Caribbean Coral Reef Institute (CCRI) funds for one or two year projects that address the following research priorities in Puerto Rico: Basic assessment of resources, understanding reef processes, research to enhance the MPA process, water quality and coral reef health, dynamics of coral diseases and syndromes.

These competitions are contingent upon Caribbean Marine Research Center receiving adequate funds from NOAA/NURP and CCRI receiving annual funding from Congress.
