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 scuba diving. For 2011 awards, applications will be accepted for four scholarships and nine training grants. Applicants may apply for only ONE scholarship or ONE training grant.
The Four scholarships will be awarded in 2011. The scholarship will be paid directly to the recipient. The nine training grants will be awarded in 2011. The grant is presented in the form of a certificate, to be redeemed at the time the recipient enrolls in an approved diving course/program or purchases equipment, at which time the funds are submitted directly to the training facility or supplier of the equipment.
