The Ocean Graduate Excellence Network (OGEN) unites graduate training with industry and government partners to provide a full-spectrum experience and shape the future of ocean research and the ocean workforce.
Students pursue a graduate degree at their home institution, while also participating in additional skill-developing activities. In addition to a generous stipend, students receive a dedicated budget for co-curricular activities that support professional development beyond academia.
Academic supervisors and government and industry partners have the opportunity to leverage funds and attract the brightest minds to join the Canadian ocean research ecosystem.
The Academic Advisory Committee (ACC) for the Ocean Graduate Excellence Network is focused on academic quality and integrity.

The Ocean Graduate Excellence Network is committed to fostering a culture grounded in diversity and inclusiveness. The program welcomes and will seek participation from:
