Overview:

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. Up to $500 may be used for dive training, and up to $500 may be used for dive equipment. When the recipient enrolls in an approved diving course/program and purchases dive equipment, the training facility/equipment vendor must send the invoice to WDHOF; funds are paid directly to the training facility/vendor, and not to the recipient.

  • One $1,000 training grant, sponsored by WDHOF member Bonnie Toth, will support advanced dive training for recreational divers.
  • One $1,000 training grant, sponsored by the Women Divers Hall of Fame, will support dive training to advance diving skills needed for the applicant’s profession (e.g., scientific diving).
  • One $1,000 training grant, sponsored by the Women Divers Hall of Fame, will support advanced training in technical or cave diving.
