Sponsored Education Admissions

Georgia Aquarium offers a Sponsored Education Admissions (SEA) Grant open to Title 1 schools and select non-profits located in the State of Georgia. This grant provides free self-guided admission when visiting with a field trip, ensuring that diverse audiences, regardless of economic status, have an opportunity to experience the wonders of the Aquarium. We’re able to provide the SEA Grant thanks to private charitable donations from generous corporations, foundations, and individuals.
