Requests for Proposals
Michigan Sea Grant sends out a Request for Proposals every two years. The next RFP will be released in January of 2015 and will include a call for several types of research proposals, including Integrated Assessments. Research proposals are selected for funding through a competitive, peer-reviewed process.

In previous years, Michigan Sea Grant has supported research projects that follow an Integrated Assessment approach. The goals of Integrated Assessments are to:
- Clarify a complicated environmental issue, including the history, causes and consequences
- Foster collaboration and build consensus
- Identify and evaluate options for solving the problem
- Develop information and tools that help guide decisions
