The NOAA Science Collaboration Program (NSCP) supports research, programs, projects and other activities related to NOAA’s mission, primarily through collaborations among scientists and professionals in areas of mutual interest across the full spectrum of NOAA sciences. This includes the support of undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers and scientists with expertise in NOAA-related sciences. It is expected that some of the scientists will collaborate onsite at NOAA facilities and laboratories. Eligible applicants must be academic institutions of higher learning which offer doctoral degreesin NOAA-related sciences; consortia of academic institutions of higher learning which offerdoctoral degrees in NOAA-related sciences; or non-profit research institutions. Multi-institutionapplications will not be accepted.
