Ella Jean Morgan Memorial Dive Training Grant

A $1,000 training grant will be awarded to a deserving young woman, age 15-21, who wishes to begin her dive education/training. Up to $500 may be used for dive training, and up to $500 may be used for dive equipment. An approved diving course must consist of at least 12 hours of classroom training, 12 hours of pool/confined-water training and at least 5 open-water dives and must culminate in a certification from a nationally recognized diver-training agency. 

When the recipient completes an approved diving course/program and arranges to purchase dive equipment, the training facility/equipment vendor will send the invoice to WDHOF; funds are paid directly to the training facility/vendor, and not to the recipient. Sponsored by Frank Boulanger, in memory of his wife and WDHOF member Ella Jean Morgan.

Eligibility:

  • Young females, age 15-21, who wish to begin their dive education/training.
