Funding Opportunities

The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) provides funding for research across the region that advances understanding of climate change impacts and variability on fish, wildlife, water, land and people. All of the NW CASC’s science investments are guided by their Science Agenda, which identifies management priorities and goals for our region.

University Consortium-Directed Research Funding

Each year, the NW CASC University Consortium provides funding for graduate students and postdocs to produce science in collaboration with natural resource managers and decision-makers, as well as instruction in the theory and practice of developing decision-relevant science. The NW CASC is currently accepting proposals for our 2021-22 Research Fellowship Program through March 15, 2021.

USGS-Directed Research Funding

NW CASC funding is also available periodically through the USGS to support research projects across the region. As part of the Climate Adaptation Science Center Network’s Federal Fiscal Year 2022 Funding Opportunity, the NW CASC is currently seeking proposals for Northwest climate adaptation research through March 19, 2021.

National Science Foundation (NSF) funding priority to support students, technicians, and postdoctoral researchers

The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) in the Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) recognizes the major impact the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have on the scientific community. In this context, EAR has prioritized consideration of supplemental funding requests to support specific classes of personnel in the Earth sciences community whose appointments have been interrupted, delayed, or otherwise disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. EAR funds have been prioritized for supplemental requests for salary, fringe, and indirect costs to support three categories of personnel: 1) students at all levels; 2) technicians; and 3) postdoctoral researchers. The goal of this priority for supplemental support to EAR awards is to provide bridge funding to directly assist existing personnel. For more information, please see the Letter from the Earth Sciences Division Director.
