The U.S. Science Support Program has multiple funding opportunities designed to support U.S.-affiliated scientists whose research uses scientific ocean drilling data. We assist scientists as they develop proposals and plans for expeditions (Workshop and Pre-Drilling Activity funding), participate on expeditions (Expedition Participant support), and complete expedition-related research (Post-Expedition Awards). We also have opportunities for graduate students, including the Schlanger Ocean Drilling Fellowship.


If you are interested in IODP research, we highly recommend that you sign up for the US IODP mailing list. The mailing list is used by the U.S. Science Support Program to announce news and opportunities of interest to the U.S. IODP community.
