OGEN Program

OGEN attracts the top students and academics and links them with industry to push the boundaries of ocean research

About the Ocean Graduate Excellence Network Program

OFI’s Ocean Graduate Excellence Network (OGEN) represents a novel mechanism to link academic institutions with government and industry collaborators whose interests align.

By leveraging donor and government or industry partner funding, academic supervisors and government or industry partners forge new connections, while also attracting top-tier students.

OGEN students have access to highly competitive stipends, while gaining valuable practical skills through collaborations with government/industry partners.

OGEN students will graduate well-rounded, multi- and trans-disciplinary, connected and prepared to shape the future of the ocean. They will graduate with knowledge and experience beyond academia.
