NextGen Scholarship

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 deserving divers on their quest for excellence. For its inaugural year, the scholarship will support one diver, with additional diver support being added in future years. 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!

How it works

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.

Thank you for your interest in the scholarship!

Due to COVID-19, the innaugural 2019-2020 scholarship has been extended through 2021. Applications for the 2021-2022 scholarship year will open in early 2021.
