The Ocean Sciences Division of the National Science Foundation (NSF/OCE) encourages proposals to conduct workshops, conferences or other training events that will support members of the ocean sciences community, including undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty at two-year and four-year institutions of higher education, to develop and disseminate training material and/or use data from the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) (http://oceanobservatories.org) for research purposes or for educational purposes. Such activities are typically identified as conferences in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide.
Proposals may be submitted at any time, but they should be submitted at least six months prior to the planned event. To be considered for FY2020 funding, proposals should be submitted before May 15th.
