Background

The Women Divers Hall of Fame (WDHOF) is a 501(c)(3) 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.

Instructor Advanced Education Training Grant 

The purpose of the grant is to encourage instructors to expand their own underwater-related skills by taking additional training leading to certification to teach dive specialty courses, or become certified as an instructor in a diving education, skill-associated field such as CPR, O2, AED, First Aid, or earn a certificate in an industry-associated field such as chamber operation or equipment repair. The grant is not limited to these examples.

 The grant may be used for single or multiple course fees and equipment needed for specialized diving or to teach the learned skill/specialty. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • Other courses that are post-instructor certification that improve or expand the instructor’s dive training safety or skills will be considered.

Ineligibility:

  • The award may not be used for travel expenses.
