Coastal Science Serving South Carolina
The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium is a university-based program that generates and provides science-based information to support the wise use and conservation of South Carolina’s coastal resources and create a sustainable economy and environment.
We facilitate coastal and marine research by identifying and funding peer-reviewed projects that address critical data needs for our state and region.
We support the informational needs of coastal residents by making science-based information, expertise, and education about coastal issues available to the public.
We develop resources for educators and students such as educator training, education programs, and undergraduate and graduate support to further ocean science education.
