  • Understanding of the research problem

  • Potential impact of their study to Indonesia's fishery and marine policy
  • Research work plan and budget

CSF will contact the selected fellows with further information in the coming week. We are excited to work with you over the next year to develop important research for Indonesia’s marine resources.

We would like to offer our appreciation to all MFP finalists for participating in this competitive process. Many of the proposals were excellent, and selecting just 6 was a very difficult process. To those who were not selected, please keep up the your good work on behalf of marine ecosystems and livelihoods in Indonesia. We hope to have another opportunity to work together in the future.
