New investigators to the Great Lakes region are encouraged to develop their research programs on Great Lakes fisheries topics. New researchers should review the new investigator criteria to see if they qualify. The category of "new investigator" is a designation, not a separate funding category. New investigators should note that they are new investigators where indicated on the pre-proposal and proposal forms.
Mentorship Opportunity for New Great Lakes Researchers
Any new investigator should contact the GLFC Science Director or one of our research theme area leaders to discuss your study ideas and objectives early in the development of a pre-proposal for submission. The BOTE extends this invitation to help new investigators develop successful proposals.
