Every two years Rhode Island Sea Grant sends out a request for proposals (RFP). Rhode Island Sea Grant considers proposals that coincide with its strategic plan goals; that contain a degree of, or potential for, interdisciplinary collaboration; that have scientific merit and feasibility; and that have an applicable outreach component.
All proposals are subject to peer review and examination by a technical panel. After considering the panel's advice, Rhode Island Sea Grant program management decides on the package of proposals to be included in the core program, and sends it to the National Sea Grant Office for final approval.
