North Carolina Sea Grant collaborates with local, state, and national partners to leverage resources and expertise, catalyze innovative projects, and develop real-world solutions for coastal North Carolina.

In addition to key collaborations with NC Space Grant and the NC Water Resources Research Institute, our past and recent partners include municipalities, businesses of all kinds, colleges and universities (and their centers and institutes), community organizations and nonprofit groups, faith-based organizations, and state and federal agencies.

North Carolina Sea Grant seeks proposals from all 16 campuses in the University of North Carolina System as well as private universities and colleges. We work with researchers at all levels and draw upon expertise across the state. An asterisk denotes a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) or Minority-Serving Institution (MSI).
