NEW LONDON, Conn. – The Coast Guard Academy hosted a signing ceremony to commemorate the establishment of an office dedicated to applying for grants and supporting academic research, Monday.

The Coast Guard Academy will be the first service academy to establish such an office.

The agreement establishes terms and conditions between the Academy and Sponsored Projects Research Incorporated which will operate separately from Academy and with its own board of directors.

The project was made possible with financial assistance from the Coast Guard Academy Alumni Association.

Research projects at the Academy have been funded with non-appropriated federal funds which has limited the number of projects cadets could be involved in because of the administrative burden involved in applying for and handling funds. The new office is expected to greatly expand and enhance the support of academic research at the Academy.
