About Workforce Development in South Carolina
More than half of the current workforce in marine-related fields will soon be eligible for retirement. There is a high demand for trained marine science professionals as well as a workforce skilled in STEM (science-technology-engineering-math) disciplines.
The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium provides K-12 educator training, resources, and education programs, as well as undergraduate and graduate fellowship opportunities to further science education at all student levels.
