Early Student Support for Physical Oceanography Investigators

Planning Letter Due Date: 31 July 2017

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) Physical Oceanography program is interested in re-invigorating graduate student participation on ONR-funded projects and initiatives, and will set aside core program funds to support beginning graduate students working with ONR-funded investigators.

  • Grants will cover students support for up to three years, including up to one month per year of supervisor/advisor support
  • Students must be involved in existing or proposed ONR-sponsored research
  • A separate planning letter for this initiative should be submitted to the core program
  • The planning letter should include the student’s resume and planned thesis activities
  • The planning letter's title should be “Early Student Support for …” with the remainder of the title being the current title of the existing or proposed ONR research grant
  • More guidance on this initiative will be given at the proposal stage
  • Up to three new students each year may be funded under this effort
