Sea Grant works to build bridges between academia, government and the private sector. Sea Grant focuses on environmental, economic, social and education improvements. Sea Grant is committed to solving coastal problems and developing new marine resources. 

Connecticut Sea Grant will work towards achieving healthy coastal and marine ecosystems and consequent public benefits by supporting integrated locally and nationally relevant research, outreach and education programs in partnership with stakeholders.

Sea Grant Arts Funding

The Connecticut Sea Grant Arts Funding Program awards up to $1000 to an artist through this competitive funding program. The winning submission will be selected on the basis of its aesthetic quality, relevance to coastal and marine environments and Connecticut Sea Grant themes, as well as its potential impact on non-traditional audiences.

These funds may be used to pay for supplies and other costs associated with producing works of art, exclusive of payment of salary and travel. The funds must be used within one year of  receiving the award. Artists will be asked to give permission to Connecticut Sea Grant to use images  representing the work in promoting the Arts Support Awards Program’s accomplishments. A written  report of the results of creative activities supported by Sea Grant, including visual documentation of the  artistic pieces and other outcomes, is required at the conclusion of the project. Projects are expected to  be completed within 12 months of funding and recipient(s) will be required to provide interim and final  reporting as requested by Connecticut Sea Grant.
