Guy Harvey Scholarship Program

The Guy Harvey Foundation offers scholarships to university students studying marine science and working to become the future leaders of ocean conservation.

Established in 2010 through a partnership between Florida Sea Grant and the Guy Harvey Foundation, a non-profit organization that conducts scientific research and hosts educational programs aimed at conserving the marine environment, the Guy Harvey Scholarship Award has provided $359,000 in financial support to 74 students at 11 different Florida universities.

“This next generation of bright minds is bringing us one step closer to understanding what it will take to protect Florida’s fragile marine environment and ensure its sustainability,” said Dr. Harvey. “Through our ongoing sup- port of marine research and by drawing attention to the important work of these students, the GHOF is helping to safeguard a healthy ocean ecosystem for generations to come.”

In 2021, eight students were selected from six Florida universities. Their research projects ranged from investi- gating bonefish habitat to better inform conservation efforts to mercury accumulation in coastal shark species.
