Sponsored Education Admissions
Georgia Aquarium developed the Sponsored Education Admissions (SEA) program in an effort to ensure diverse audiences, regardless of economic status, have an opportunity to participate in our unique educational experiences at a reduced rate or free of charge. Through the generous contributions of local and national individuals, foundations and corporations, we are able to offer this gift to schools and nonprofit organizations operating in the state of Georgia.The availability of funds will determine the number of schools/nonprofit organizations selected to receive sponsored admission.

SEA applications will be accepted through February of 2015 and all visits must be conducted prior to February 28, 2015. Click here to download a 2014-2015 SEA Application.
