Call For Proposals: 2017 Shiptime

The application deadline has passed.

We anticipate our next call for proposals in September 2017.  The following information from the last competition is provided for reference.


For ship time to be used during calendar year 2017

DEADLINE: Proposals are due Monday, 28 NOV 2016.
REVIEW: Proposals will be reviewed in DEC 2016
AWARDS: Awards will be announced by JAN 2017.

The UC Ship Funds Program is now soliciting proposals from students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty and staff for ship time aboard research vessels operated by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

Awards pay for ship time and the operation of standard shipboard instrumentation at sea. For student cruises, limited funds are available for cruise-related expenses (for instance non-standard shipboard instrumentation, shipping, travel, data processing, or sample analysis costs). To be considered, these costs should be specifically described and estimated in the proposal.

Please see the links in the menu at right for information regarding eligibility, priority of proposals, and how to apply.

Proposals for work during the periods of availability below are solicited.

If you intend to submit a proposal, please contact SIO ship scheduler Liz Brenner to check vessel availability.
