Australian researchers are invited to apply for fully-funded grants of sea time onboard the Southern Coastal Research Vessel Fleet (SCRVF) up to a maximum of 14 days per voyage.

These grants will be for sea time in 2025.

Time onboard will be on either the South Australian marine research vessel (MRV) Ngerin, the Western Australian research vessel (RV) Naturaliste or another 18-20 metre coastal vessel in the SCRVF.

There will be approximately 45 days of sea time available in 2025 across these vessels to support this application call. Multiple applications for funded sea time will be supported.

These opportunities are funded through the Australian Government's ‘Supporting the establishment of a southern coastal research vessel fleet’ project.

Applications close at 11:59 pm (ACST) on Wednesday 28 August 2024.

To apply, and for more information on eligibility, assessment and vessel capability, visit the SARDI website.
