CINAR Proposal Guidelines


CINAR allows consortium partners (Gulf of Maine Research Institute, Rutgers University, University of Maine, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) to submit proposals to NOAA through the Cooperative Agreement #NA14OAR4320158. All proposals are submitted through the lead CINAR institution - WHOI. Guidelines for submission of CINAR proposals for both WHOI and partner institutions are outlined under the corresponding sections (see links below). Each instititution should follow their own internal proposal guidelines as well as those designated for CINAR.

Please contact CINAR Administrator, Ann Stone at 508-289-3837 or  prior to completing a CINAR proposal to let her know your plans and so that the CINAR office can provide any additional details that might be needed at the time. This will also help to determine the appropriate start date NOAA will consider for your proposal. Proposal dates must be within the current cooperative agreement period - ending June 30, 2019.  

If you have questions regarding the applicability of your project to the CINAR themes and region, please contact the CINAR Associate Director, Mindy Richlen, at (508 289 2552) or the CINAR Director, Don Anderson, at (508 289 2351).
