Overview:

The mission of the American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS) is to facilitate the development of safe and productive scientific divers through education, research and the advancement of standards for scientific diving practices, certifications and operations. The AAUS Foundation is a 501(c)3 corporation established to promote the philanthropic efforts of the Academy.

The Foundation will administer both existing and new scholarship initiatives on behalf of the Academy. AAUS awards competitive scholarships to graduate students engaged in, or planning to begin, a research project in which diving is used as an important research tool or the research topic is diving science.
