Type of Award

Grants to USCB faculty for research intended to advance knowledge and understanding of the Sea Islands.  

Program Description

SII grants will be awarded to support USCB faculty local research projects.  Proposals must establish a regional context for research, and preference will be given to those that promote an understanding of the region.

Award Year

The award year will be from January 1 through December 31.


All full-time faculty are eligible to apply for funds.  Tenured and tenure-track faculty applications are especially solicited.  Projects will be judged on their merit.
