Call for Proposals: 2022 Shiptime

For ship time to be used during calendar year 2022

DEADLINE: Proposals are due Monday, 29 NOV 2021

Review: Proposals will be reviewed in DEC 2021
Awards: Announcements will be made by JAN 2022

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 menu links for information regarding eligibility, prioritization of proposals, and how to apply.

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

Schedules are subject to change.  If you intend to submit a proposal, please contact Research Vessel Expeditionary Coordinator (RVEC) Hannah Delapp for up-to-date scheduling information to include in your proposal.

Availability

The Program anticipates awarding the following maximum numbers of days aboard each vessel.

Robert Gordon Sproul: up to 25 days, envisioned as multiple short trips for a variety of different projects.
Sally Ride: up to 20 days
Roger Revelle: up to 5 days

For any specific project, any number of days may be proposed, up to the maximum for the ship requested.   Any required port days not in San Diego must be included in the requested number of days.
