Deadline for applications for the MARINE DEBRIS RESEARCH GRANT for proposals for research on marine debris impact and behaviors. This opportunity provides funding to support eligible organizations to conduct research directly related to marine debris through field, laboratory, and modeling experiments. Applicants requesting funding for research that explores the ecological risk associated with marine debris, determines debris exposure levels, and examines the fate and transport of marine debris in nearshore, coastal environments are welcome to apply. Projects may address one or more of these research priorities and should be original, hypothesis-driven projects that have not previously been addressed to scientific standards. For questions on the opportunity, please contact Peter Murphy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
