LEARN MORE AND APPLY HERE: NextGen Scholarship

Applications close July 1st.

As a way to empower the next generation of divers, GUE has created the NextGen Scholarship to provide a year of training and other benefits to a deserving diver on their quest for excellence. If you're a certified diver who is passionate about pursuing further education, have an interest in exploration and conservation, and are ready for a year of new adventures, keep reading to learn more!

Through the generous donation of course spaces from GUE instructors, one year of tuition-free GUE training is made available to divers. These course spaces include the majority of GUE's curriculum, and with a generous travel budget, dedicated support from a NextGen Mentor, and a new set of gear from Halcyon, scholarship recipients are able to undertake GUE training in the locations and environments they're most passionate about. In exchange for this support, scholars will provide both written and video documentation of their year as a NextGen scholar and take part in a NextGen presentation at the next GUE conference.

SCHOLARSHIP BENEFITS​

  • Free GUE training for one year
  • A $2,000 USD travel budget
  • $3,000 USD worth of diving equipment from Halcyon
