The Women Divers Hall of Fame ™ (WDHOF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to honoring and raising awareness of the contributions of outstanding women divers. WDHOF provides educational, mentorship, financial, and career opportunities to the diving community throughout the world. Each year, WDHOF awards scholarships and training grants that provide financial and educational support to individuals of all ages, particularly those who are preparing for professional careers that involve diving.

Scholarships are offered in marine conservation, marine biology, underwater archaeology, education (marine or freshwater), dive instructor education, and dive medicine. They are intended to support independent research and/or internship programs. They do not support living expenses or student loans. Scholarships are paid or awarded directly to the recipient.

Training grants provide funding for diving and related underwater training and, for some awards, scuba equipment (but only after dive training has been completed). For training conducted in the U.S., funds are paid directly to the training facility and/or the equipment vendor upon WDHOF’s receipt of an invoice; they are NOT paid directly to the grantee.  For training that is not conducted in the U.S., the awardee will be reimbursed after she/he completes the training.

The deadline for receipt of applications is October 31, 2017, at midnight U.S. Eastern Standard Time. Applicants will be notified of award status by February 1, 2018. Only online submissions will be accepted and no exceptions will be made for late submissions.

Full details of the application process, descriptions of the scholarships and training grants available and all other necessary information can be found at www.wdhof.org.
