Teaching and inspiring the next generation of marine scientists

Our scholars program is intended to give undergraduate and graduate students hands-on experience in marine science, management and policy. We partner with state natural-resource agencies and field labs, and also accept and screen applicants for fellowships offered through the National Sea Grant office.

Qualified students are placed within lab, field or agency offices from Oregon's coast to the nation's capital, providing scholars with experience, skill-building and mentoring as they learn. Sea Grant scholars have gone on to exemplary careers in marine science, management and policy.
