Overview:

Hugh Fletcher Memorial Training Grant to Assist the Disabled to Dive

The main focus of Hugh Fletcher Memorial Training Grant is to Assist the Disabled to Dive. A $1,000 training grant (up to $500 for training and up to $500 for dive equipment) will be awarded to any disabled diver who wishes to pursue or further his/her dive education and purchase adaptive equipment, or to a dive master, assistant instructor, or instructor to gain the required education/training to assist or teach the disabled to dive.

When the recipient enrolls in an approved diving course/program and purchases adaptive 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. 

Sponsored by WDHOF co-founder and member Kathy Weydig and friends of Hugh Fletcher.
