U.S.-affiliated scientists who participate in the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) may receive limited supplemental funding for post-expedition activities through the U.S. Science Support Program (USSSP) as managed by the Consortium for Ocean Leadership. Post-expedition activity (PEA) awards are intended to help participants defray the costs associated with fulfilling their obligation to submit and publish the scientific results of their expedition-related research in IODP publications or in the open literature. PEA awards typically provide modest resources for short-term core characterization efforts or for pilot studies aimed at identifying promising avenues for future research. Funds are awarded on a competitive basis, and each eligible scientist may receive up to $15,000. Scientists who seek more substantial support for expedition-related research projects should apply directly to NSF for an Expedition Objective Research grant.
U.S. scientists who sail on IODP expeditions may apply for supplemental funding to help defray the cost of research obligations associated with the expedition. All required materials are necessary for consideration. Learn More
After review from an external committee of scientists, funds are awarded on a competitive basis. Congratulations to past recipients of these awards! Read More
