Marine Conservation Scholarship

Marine conservation has been our most popular and most competitive scholarship opportunity for several years. In response to the high number of competitive applications, WDHOF and our sponsors continue to offer several scholarships in marine conservation. The scholarships will be awarded to qualified women of any age who are enrolled in accredited graduate or undergraduate academic or research programs in the field of marine conservation. The scholarships are intended to support independent research at an accredited university; they will not support tuition, living expenses or student loan payments. The applicant should clearly state how the intended use of the scholarship will advance marine conservation. The awards are $2000 for graduate students and $1000 for undergraduate students.
