U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Civil Works

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Civil Works (USACE), in coordination with the U.S. Coastal Research Program (USCRP), is soliciting proposals to support collaborative research in the following topical areas (see linked documents below).

The U.S. Coastal Research Program (USCRP) is a partnership of the coastal research community to coordinate Federal activities, strengthen academic programs, and build a strong workforce. The USCRP addresses societal needs along the coast through a coordinated effort backed by researchers from Federal agencies, academia, industry, and non-governmental organizations. In 2019, the USCRP is providing approximately $5M in competitive awards for academic proposals addressing the topics described below. Awards will be made with the intent of assisting academic institutions in funding coastal and nearshore processes graduate students to address critical research needs within the coastal community, advancing the state of knowledge, and building the future U.S. workforce.

Two types of awards are available:
(1) Academic Research: 2-3 year awards addressing strategic needs.
(2) Student Challenges: 1-2 year awards targeting short-term, focused, student driven initiatives.

In January 2019, the US Coastal Research Program will advertise 12 Requests for Statements of Interest (rSOI) through the Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Units (CESU) Network. There will be one rSOI advertised for each research topic, as described below. Each announcement will provide additional details regarding the approximate total funding available in that topical area and point(s) of contact for additional information.

NOTE: Review of Statements of Interest for each topical area will begin after the individual rSOI has been posted on the CESU Network website for 10 working days.
