The Divers Alert Network has awarded the R.W. “Bill” Hamilton Memorial Scholarship to Norwegian scientist Ingrid Eftedal.

Eftedal, who works at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, will use the US$10,000/8770-Euro award to support a study on occupational saturation divers on the Norwegian continental shelf, according to DAN:

“The results of her study will provide information that may be applied to prepare and protect divers from injury, and it therefore closely aligns with DAN’s mission to advance dive science and promote dive safety in the industry.”

DAN created the scholarship in honor of Bill Hamilton, a researcher who conducted hyperbaric studies over the past 40 years. The scholarship is funded by The DAN Foundation and administered by the Women Divers Hall of Fame.
