The Florida Sea Grant Scholars Program provides financial support to high-achieving graduate or undergraduate students who are enrolled full-time at Florida universities, in order to support timely and innovative ocean and coastal-related research. The simple application process is outlined below. Five $2,000 scholarships will be awarded.

Selected projects must align with one or more of the goals identified in our 2014-2017 Strategic Plan.

Students are eligible to receive the award just one time, as our aim is to support a diversity of projects and establish a cadre of scholars over the lifetime of this award. Scholars will participate in a Sea Grant event in 2016 or 2017 and will spend a day shadowing a Sea Grant extension agent, in addition to using their funds to support their research program (attending our extension retreat or the next coastal science symposium).

To apply, a student needs to submit the application and budget form 90-4.


All application materials must be sent by e-mail directly to Melissa Macarages, and be received no later than February 3, 2017.

Fiscal questions may be directed to Ed Harvey. For technical content questions and proposal preparation, contact Dr. Karl Havens, (352) 392-5870.
