Jill Heinerth and Patty Mortara the co-owners of WomenUnderwater.com and editors for the NEW women’s diving section (which will premier here on DeeperBlue.net in the near future) are sponsoring a $500 scholarship. This scholarship will be awarded to a woman diver to expand her education and/or training into the realm of technical diving.
The deadline is quickly approaching (October 31st) so Jill, Patty and their scholarship team are patiently awaiting applications from potential candidates.
Here is the link to the application:The funds are intended for the selected scholar to continue her diving education. The funds can be used towards diving courses such as decompression procedures, overhead environment (wreck / cave training), gas courses (advanced nitrox thru trimix) or closed-circuit rebreather training.
Applications are open to women world-wide and the selected scholar gets to choose the course she would like to take, with which instructor, and the WomenUnderwater Scholarship Fund will provide $500.00 towards her endeavor.
The Women Underwater Scholarship is part of the WDHOF (Women Divers Hall of Fame) Scholarship program. There are 8 other scholarships available this year thru that organization; information regarding those can be found at
