Blue Scholars Initiative
Blue Scholars Initiative engages students in marine biology, marine ecology and watershed concepts, providing a better understanding of, and connection to, the marine ecosystem and the impact of human stresses. Through hands-on, experiential learning, students further investigate the rich biodiversity beneath the surface, conduct citizen science and develop a passion for the environment, inspiring our next generation of ocean stewards to solve our most pressing and difficult issues.
Blue Scholars Initiative is a free educational program inviting each participating group to perform a Community Service Project (CSP) to earn their trip. CSPs provide an opportunity for students to not only work together and connect with their peers, but also to develop life-skills while learning the value of giving back to benefit the community.
