Reporting Guidelines

Reports are a required condition upon accepting Sea Grant funds. These reports are vital to convey the achievements of your projects to NOAA-National Sea Grant, state, local and other sponsors and, when appropriate, to the general public.

Online Progress and Final Reports

Annual online progress reports: These reports are due one month (23 days) after the completion of each 12-month grant period.

Final online report: This is due two months (60 days) after the project end date.

Reports are submitted using the electronic form at the “Edit or Submit Your Online Progress/Final Report” link in the upper right. Have the following information available before you fill in the online reporting form:

  • Changes in objective, methodology and rationale
  • Accomplishments/findings to date
  • Benefits
  • Presentations – including number of attendees
  • Significant interactions with other agencies
  • Media contacts
  • Students supported – including undergraduate and graduate students
  • Publications – including journal articles or outreach materials

Final Narrative Report

In addition to the online progress reports, Michigan Sea Grant research projects are required to complete a final narrative report. This must be submitted before the project end date so that Michigan Sea Grant can facilitate a peer review process. Additional details will be provided to funded research teams.
