MASGC commits to interdisciplinary environmental scholarship and community-based natural resources management so that coastal and marine resources are conserved and managed for a sustainable economy and environment. The tools available in support of the MASGC mission are applied interdisciplinary research, communications, education, extension and legal services using both targeted and cross-cutting approaches. These tools are utilized at local, state, regional, national, and international arenas.
The MASGC 2014-2017 strategic plan identifies four focus areas:
Funding in support of these focus areas is provided by Sea Grant through a biennial omnibus program, small programs development grants, jointly released funding opportunities with federal agencies, national strategic investments and fellowships. During proposal development, you will be required to submit numerous federal forms. To ease the application process MASGC provides downloadable versions of these forms. The Sea Grant Handbook offers administrative guidelines for the preparation, administration, and reporting of proposals to the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium.
