Call for Proposals

Due to the Great Lakes Fishery Commission Research Program’s funding cycle, we are unable to further extend our FY2020 Call for Proposals beyond January 29, 2019 11:59PM (EDT). As such, pre-proposals will be affected by the partial U.S. government shutdown. To partially account for a lack of federal employee contribution to pre-proposals, we request that PIs provide a brief narrative (1 paragraph) specifically indicating areas of the pre-proposal where input from federal collaborators is lacking. The narrative will be taken into account when reviewing pre-proposals and areas lacking detail from federal collaborators will not be penalized by the research boards provided the proposed research is relevant to the Commission and its partners and scientific feasibility can be evaluated.

Please provide this narrative as an "Additional Document" using the GLFC proposal system. Furthermore, pre-proposals invited to submit a full proposal will be able to request a change in Principle Investigator, if required.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this issue.
