Oregon Sea Grant provides resources for conferences or other activities that support or promote interaction, engagement or discussion among Oregon Sea Grant (OSG) stakeholders on topic areas that align with OSG strategic efforts.


Requests for funds can be made on an as-needed basis and cannot exceed $2,500 per event. Allow 60 days for review and support determination.


Special considerations will be given to activities that reflect the breadth of the OSG program.

  • Does the activity advance OSG vision and mission?
  • Will OSG personnel (staff and/or grantees) benefit from the activity being supported? 
  • Does the supported activity align with OSG’s non-advocacy, neutral, third-party philosophy?

Note: Funds cannot be used to supplement activities already supported by OSG or take the place of existing funds. Funds cannot be directly applied toward travel or other individual reimbursements.
