Louisiana Sea Grant is providing a coastal immersion program that combines community engagement and science communication training. Select students will participate in a one-week field experience highlighting the needs of coastal residents and the importance of responsive, integrated research initiatives.

Scholars will gain new awareness of community perspectives on coastal issues and challenges that the state faces in the future. This experience will hopefully inspire new research questions and give students the communication tools to raise awareness. Lodging, meals and transportation during the retreat will be provide by Louisiana Sea Grant at no cost to the students.

Eligibility: All Louisiana graduate students conducting research in the coastal zone

Availability: There is space for only 25 students to participate in the program
