Sea Grant

The Director provides leadership and programmatic oversight for the Maine Sea Grant College Program, a state-federal partnership based at the University of Maine. The mission of Maine Sea Grant is to support and promote marine science and education and their use in the development, management, and stewardship of marine and coastal resources. Part of a network of 33 Sea Grant programs throughout the coastal and Great Lakes states and territories, Maine Sea Grant supports integrated scientific research, outreach, and education programs. Maine Sea Grant annually receives approximately $1.2 million from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, as well as matching funds from the University of Maine. Approximately 50% of the NOAA funds are distributed for research and education projects, awarded through a biennial peer-reviewed competition, with the remainder supporting management, outreach, and education programs. Outreach is a key element of Maine Sea Grant, conducted via a team of science communication professionals and the Marine Extension Team, a partnership with University of Maine Cooperative Extension. The individuals who make up the Marine Extension Team give Maine Sea Grant a unique geographic reach from Kittery to Eastport, and provide experienced assistance to coastal communities, ensuring that Sea Grant research is relevant and beneficial to the people of Maine.
