SMALL RESEARCH GRANTS PROGRAM
The Nantucket Biodiversity Initiative (NBI) provides funding for research projects that expand knowledge of understudied taxonomic groups and the overall biodiversity of Nantucket, Tuckernuck, Muskeget and surrounding waters.
Since 2005, the NBI has awarded $70,630 in funding for 75 accepted research proposals studying a wide variety of topics.
These grants are awarded annually. A Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued in December every year; the proposal submission deadline is the following March.
We are currently accepting proposals for the 2019 Small Research Grants Program. Proposals are due March 11th 2019. See below for an Application Form and the Application Instructions.
