2018 Marine Education and Training Mini Grant Program (Deadline extended to March 16)

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA/NMFS) is soliciting competitive applications for the 2018 Pacific Islands Region Marine Education and Training (MET) Mini-Grant Program. Projects are being solicited to improve communication, education, and training on marine resource issues throughout the region and increase scientific education for marine-related professions among coastal community residents, including indigenous Pacific islanders, Native Hawaiians and other underrepresented groups in the region.

Dates: Proposals must be received by http://www.Grants.gov, postmarked, or provided to a
delivery service by 5:00 p.m., Hawaii Standard Time, on March 16, 2018. Use of Grants.gov is
preferred. If Grants.gov cannot reasonably be used, use of U.S. mail or another delivery service
must be documented with a receipt; private metered postmarks are not acceptable. Postmarked
applications received more than 5 business days following the closing date will not be accepted. No
facsimile or electronic mail applications will be accepted.

When developing your application submission timeline, please keep in mind that you are encouraged
to apply through the www.grants.gov website. This electronic submission system is relatively
complex for first time users and involves several preliminary registrations to be completed before
your application can be submitted (2-4 weeks). Please review section IV G. Other Submission
Requirements for additional detail.
