Collaborative Science Catalyst Grants

In early 2018, the Science Collaborative solicited proposals for one-year collaborative science catalyst grants. Catalyst grants support activities that advance collaborative science by: facilitating the development of new, collaborative science ideas; amplifying or enhancing existing collaborative research; or synthesizing NERRS System Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) data for a regional or national application. All projects must adopt an end user driven approach and meet a reserve management need. Applicants were encouraged to draw on both the social sciences and physical/natural sciences to meet the goals of this RFP. Project budgests could range from $75,000 and $250,000 for these one-year projects. 

The request for proposals has closed and 11 projects were selected for funding.
