California Sea Grant Celebrates 40 Years!

California Sea Grant is celebrating 40 years of serving California’s coast. California Sea Grant began in 1968 with an award to Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD, to develop an interdepartmental, graduate-level curriculum in Applied Ocean Science. In 1973 we were designated as an official Sea Grant College, and today we are one of the largest of 33 NOAA Sea Grant programs nationwide.

During that time, we’ve funded an estimated 900+ students through fellowships, traineeships and scholarships. To celebrate this milestone, we have created this interactive map to show where our fellows, scholars and trainees from over the years have ended up. Click “view larger map” to get a closer view and find what alumni in your area are up to!

We’d like to continue to grow this map, so if you are an alum and would like to participate, email with the below information.
