NOAA Ocean Exploration and the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation share a common goal to engage and inspire the next generation of ocean explorers in ways that are equitable and inclusive to learners of all backgrounds.
The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Accessibility (DEIA) Ocean Exploration Education Grants project launched in 2021 to support the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) workforce development pipeline and engage diverse learners from communities that have been historically underserved and underrepresented in ocean science and exploration.
These grants are for use by educators and/or education program implementers working at the intersection of STEAM education and DEIA to support workforce development where barriers are most prohibitive to recruitment and retention of diverse learners.
