For most competitions eligible applicants are institutions of higher education, other non-profits, state, local, Indian Tribal Governments, commercial organizations, US Territories and Federal agencies that possess the statutory authority to accept funding for this type of research. The individual FFOs contain the applicant eligibility for that specific competition. DOC/NOAA supports cultural and gender diversity and encourages women and minority individuals and groups to submit applications to the OAP. In addition, DOC/NOAA is strongly committed to broadening the participation of historically black colleges and universities, Hispanic serving institutions, tribal colleges and universities, and institutions that work in underserved areas. We encourage proposals involving any of the above institutions.
