APNEP Grants

2015 APNEP – NC Sea Grant Graduate Fellowship in Estuarine Research- up to $10,000

  • Applications due: May 15
  • Eligible entities: Only graduate students in good academic standing, attending an accredited North Carolina or Virginia university or college are eligible to apply. Proposed work must be conducted within the North Carolina portion of the APNEP management boundary

This fellowship is supported by North Carolina Sea Grant and the Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership, or APNEP. The opportunity provides funding for graduate students based in North Carolina and Virginia to conduct applied research within the North Carolina portion of the APNEP management boundary.

Economic Analysis of the Costs and Benefits of Restoration and Enhancement of Shellfish Habitat and Oyster Propagation in North Carolina- up to $35,000

  • Applications due: May 15
  • Eligible entities: Federal, state, regional, and local government agencies, academic institutions, for-profit and nonprofit organizations and institutions are eligible to apply. Individuals are not eligible to apply.

The North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries (NCDMF) is responsible for stewardship of estuarine resources (G.S. 113-131) and enhancing shellfish habitat (G.S. 113-201). In addition, the NC Coastal Habitat Protection Plan recommends that oyster restoration be expanded. The Shellfish Rehabilitation Program, Oyster Sanctuary Program and the Artificial Reef Program all support the enhancement of shellfish habitat. Proposals are sought to examine the management of shellfish habitat in North Carolina to justify continuation or augmentation of these programs or provide insight on where process changes could improve effectiveness.

Economic Valuation of the Albemarle-Pamlico Watershed's Natural Resources- up to $80,000

  • Applications due: May 17
  • Eligible entities: Federal, state, regional, and local government agencies, academic institutions, for-profit and nonprofit organizations and institutions are eligible to apply. Individuals are not eligible to apply.

The work represented in this RFP is necessary to assess economic value of the Albemarle-Pamlico watershed's natural resources using the most up-to-date economic analytic techniques and information. Those who reside in or have influence upon the APNEP region will use the resulting economic valuation: economists, educators, legislators, researchers, key decision makers, and the general public. A select list of socioeconomic indicators used in this assessment will be recommended for addition to the APNEP indicators of ecosystem health.
