Port Royal Sound Foundation Announces Inaugural Research Grant Request for Proposals
Okatie, SC – The mission of the Port Royal Sound Foundation (PRSF) is to preserve the Port
Royal Sound for the environmental, cultural, and economic well-being of our area. The Port
Royal Sound covers 50% of Beaufort County and is at the center of our Lowcountry lifestyle,
saturating not only the salt marshes and mud flats on the island coasts, but also the history, art, economy, recreation, and culture of the area.
The Port Royal Sound Foundation strives to be the leading authority and advocate for the Port
Royal Sound, providing and supporting education, research, and conservation initiatives to
preserve it. As such, PRSF is excited to announce its new grants program and the opening of its Request for Proposals (RFP).
The Port Royal Sound Foundation seeks to support and partner with researchers and
organizations developing additional information or programs regarding the waters of the Port
Royal Sound, the lands and watersheds around the Port Royal Sound, the culture and history of the Port Royal Sound area, and the lives of the plants, animals and humans that have been or are an important part of this special place. This area is a major economic driver with a rich cultural history, as well as the largest expanse of salt marsh in the southeast, and yet is largely understudied.
All research supports the PRSF mission to preserve the Port Royal Sound for the environmental, cultural, and economic well-being of our area. The role of PRSF is to provide direct or matching funding to researchers and to assist in convening parties interested in providing funding for research. The more knowledge, awareness, and appreciation we have of the Sound and the life within it, the better we can take action to protect it. PRSF looks forward to growing our grants funding program and further facilitating this expansion of our knowledge in the future.
Guidelines for proposals are available at www.PortRoyalSoundFoundation.org/RFP.
Proposals will be due by 5 PM by 12/31/21
Questions regarding this RFP can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
