Division of Research - PESCA Grant Program

The Division of Research funds the PESCA Research Seed Grant Program to support significant research projects that have the potential to lead to the awarding of external funding by agencies and endowments such as major federal research funding agencies, national endowments, institutes, foundations and councils. A variety of activities are eligible for funding including travel for research, access to data resources, graduate student support, and seed funding to support application for federal and other national-level grants.
