Pennsylvania Sea Grant Invests in Science-Based Research 

Pennsylvania Sea Grant conducts and supports scientific research that promotes the ecological and economic sustainability of Pennsylvania’s coastal and watershed resources.

This science-based research expands our understanding of aquatic ecosystems, coastlines, and watersheds and has the potential to yield solution-based results that assist decision makers as they address some of the region's most pressing coastal and watershed issues and develop or update statewide water quality and coastal management strategies.

Research opportunities are announced through a biennial request for proposal (RFP) process. Research funding is provided through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Department of Commerce, the National Sea Grant College Program, and through Penn State University.
