WDOF Special Research Grant
Women Divers Hall of Fame (WDHOF®) is pleased to announce a competitive grant of $5,000 for women conducting research on the sustainability of marine or freshwater species or communities impacted by climate change. This grant is made possible by a donation from Dutch fashion brand Scotch & Soda, as a tribute to the French sea explorer Simone Melchior Cousteau for her numerous achievements in underwater exploration. Inspired by Simone Melchior Cousteau, the brand’s Summer 2021 collection celebrates the explorer’s love for the oceans through the use of sea life-inspired prints and nods to her South of France coastal upbringing. This grant is open to those who identify as female. Applicants may be graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, or early career scientists (defined as within 10 years of completion of PhD). Go to www.wdhof.org to find more detailed information on the grant and a link to the application. Completed applications are due by midnight EDT, on April 23.
