Overview:

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.

Advanced Dive Training Grants

Three $1,000 training grants (up to $500 for training and up to $500 for dive equipment) will be awarded to deserving women divers of any age and background who wish to further their dive education through approved scuba diving programs beyond the basic certification level. These grants are intended to support advanced dive training in three categories: recreational diving, professional diving (i.e., to advance diving skills needed for the applicant’s profession), and technical or cave diving.
