Guidelines

Purpose: This Request for Applications (RFA) is intended to expand OSG research on resilience and adaptation capabilities both in geographic location and in scope through focused, graduate-student driven research projects. We plan to provide stipend support for graduate student researchers who wish to improve their knowledge of the complex interactions between social and ecological dynamics at different scales and to envision adaptive, community-based approaches. The goals of the RFA are to support new research on resilience and adaptation and to expand the number of existing professionals in the field, with direct connections to coastal community needs in Oregon. OSG seeks to support individuals with projects that take the next step towards resilience as a practice.

Subject: Oregon Sea Grant: Social Science and Human Dimensions Projects and new graduate fellowship opportunity

 

Dear Cass, Denise, and Max,

I wanted to thank you for your assistance earlier this year in pulling together the Request for Proposals for OSG’s Social Science and Human Dimensions Research call. The response to this targeted call was very good – we received 18 letters of interest and 10 full proposals, resulting in 3 funded projects:

 

Cramer, Lori (OSU); Wang, Haizhong (OSU); Cox, Dan (OSU) Building Resilient Coastal Communities: A Social Assessment of Mobile Technology for Tsunami Evacuation Planning

 

Harte, Michael (OSU); Rosenberger, Randall (OSU); Swearington, Tommy (ODFW); Romsos, Christopher (OSU) Operationalizing Economic Benefit Assessments for Oregon Marine Reserve Sites

 

Hildreth, Richard (UO) Implementing Ecosystem Based Management: Connecting Caretakers of the Oregon Coast with Transformative and Practical Legal Tools

 

 

Also, continuing along the theme of support for social science methods, OSG is happy to announce a new funding opportunity for graduate student fellowships on the topic of resilience and adaptation:http://seagrant.oregonstate.edu/fellowships/coastal-resilience

 

I encourage you to circulate the announcement below to any interested students or faculty advisors.

 

Thank you again for your help and support of Oregon Sea Grant’s programs.

Sincerely,

Sarah
