    Every year the Women Divers Hall of Fame offers several scholarships and grants.

    While many of these are established specifically for marine science, conservation or archaeology, there are a few that could be of interest to CHUMmers of the female persuasion.

    WDHOF ADVANCED DIVE TRAINING GRANT sponsored by Bonnie Toth
    A $1,000 training grant (up to $500 for training and up to $500 for dive equipment) will be awarded to a deserving woman diver of any age and background who wishes to further her dive education through an approved scuba diving program beyond the basic certification level. Up to $500 may be used for dive training, and up to $500 may be used for dive equipment. The recipient MUST use the funds for training BEFORE she uses the award to purchase dive equipment. When the recipient enrolls in an approved diving course/program and purchases dive equipment, the training facility/equipment vendor must send the invoice to WDHOF; funds are paid directly to the training facility/vendor, and not to the recipient.

    WDHOF / ELLA JEAN MORGAN MEMORIAL DIVE TRAINING GRANT
    A $1,000 training grant will be awarded to a deserving young female, age 15-21, who wishes to begin her dive education/training. Up to $500 may be used for dive training, and up to $500 may be used for dive equipment. The recipient MUST use the funds for training BEFORE she uses the award to purchase dive equipment. An approved diving course must consist of at least 12 hours of classroom training, 12 hours of pool/confined-water training and at least 5 open-water dives and must culminate in a certification from a nationally recognized diver-training agency. When the recipient enrolls in an approved diving course/program and purchases dive equipment, the training facility/equipment vendor must send the invoice to WDHOF; funds are paid directly to the training facility/vendor, and not to the recipient.

    WDHOF / KIDS SEA CAMP BASIC DIVE TRAINING GRANTS, sponsored by Margo Peyton
    Two $500 training grants will be awarded to deserving women divers of any age and background who wish to begin their dive education through a PADI scuba certification course. Two awards will be given to novice divers to gain the fundamental knowledge, skills and ability to safely breathe underwater. The recipients must enroll in approved PADI diving courses/programs at a PADI training facility located closest to the home of the recipient. The training facility must send the invoice to WDHOF; funds are paid directly to the training facility, and not to the recipient.


    Why not take a chance and apply for one of these if you're qualified?

    Details on application, as well as details on the other scholarships and grants can be found here.

    If you know of anyone who might qualify for one, please pass the info along to them.
