From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The sea grant colleges are a group of 30 U.S. universities that are involved in the National Sea Grant College Program. Members of the program are involved in scientific research, education, training, and extension projects geared toward the conservation and practical use of U.S. coasts, the Great Lakes and other marine areas. The program was instituted in 1966 when the U.S. Congress passed the National Sea Grant College Program Act; it is administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Sea grant colleges are not to be confused with land-grant colleges (a program instituted in 1862), space-grant colleges (instituted in 1988) or sun-grant colleges (instituted in 2003).
