Science Serving Florida’s Coasts

Florida Sea Grant is a university-based program that supports research, education and extension to conserve coastal resources for residents and visitors and enhance economic opportunities for the people of Florida.
Florida Sea Grant envisions a future where people use our coastal and marine resources in ways that capture the economic and social benefits they offer, while preserving their quality and abundance for future generations.

Our funding opportunities span a range of interests and enable students to make a real difference for Florida’s coast while carving out their own path for the future.

Florida Sea Grant supports the work of scientists and researchers in a wide variety of disciplines from institutions across the state. Our competitive funding opportunities address the critical issues affecting our coastal resources and economy.

We ensure Florida’s workforce is highly trained and prepared to respond to the state’s complex marine and coastal issues.
