American Cetacean Society-Puget Sound Grants for 2008

Request for Research Proposals
The American Cetacean Society (ACS), the oldest whale and dolphin 
conservation organization (est. 1967) protects whales, dolphins, 
porpoises, and their habitats and ecosystems through public education, 
research grants, and conservation actions. ACS has supported worthwhile 
research projects in past years and continues to do so today.

The Puget Sound Chapter of ACS (ACS/PS) was re-established in the 
summer of 1999 and has more than 70 members. Despite being a newer 
chapter, we have already awarded one grant in 2000 and two grants in 
2001, one in 2002, two in 2004, one in 2005, and two in 2007. This year 
we are offering one (1) $1,000 grant to be restricted to research of 
Southern Resident Killer Whales within the waters of Oregon, Washington 
or British Columbia, Canada.

The individual conducting the research must submit the proposal, in 
addition to a CV.  Project Managers or Principal Investigators will 
oversee all fieldwork. Applicants must have obtained any necessary 
permits or authorizations for conducting the proposed research prior to 
any awards being disbursed.

This grant is available to undergraduate students currently enrolled in 
a college or university and graduate students currently enrolled in, or 
accepted to, a masters or doctorate program who meet the evaluation 
criteria.  The research must be conducted within the waters of Oregon, 
Washington State or British Columbia (Salish Sea). Researchers of any 
nationality are eligible to apply.

Proposals will be accepted through 30 MARCH 2008, and letters of 
acceptance or denial will be issued no later than 30 APRIL 2008.

The grant award will be available on 15 MAY 2008.

Funding for this year’s grant has been generously provided by the Whale 
Watch Operators Association Northwest (WWOANW) and from the following 
whale-watch operators: Prince of Whales, Springtide Charters, and San 
Juan Safaris.

Please visit our website (www.acspugetsound.org) and click on “Research 
Grants”, then “Proposal Guide” for a full description of the guidelines 
for the research proposal and review process.
Expected Deliverables

There is no deadline for the completion of work; however, a brief 
report describing the progress/status of the research should be 
presented to ACS/PS no later than one (1) year after receipt of 
funds. This report will be featured in a future issue of our chapter 
newsletter, Whulj.  In addition, the Salish Sea grant recipient will be 
invited to present a talk at one of our chapter meetings.
