The BSC is offering a scholarship per year to assist a deserving individual with becoming certified as an PADI Open Water Scuba Diver. The scholarship will carry a value of up to $1,000 and will be awarded to a Saskatchewan resident between the ages of 16 and 25 years. All the training will take place in the Battlefords Region. The scholarship will pay for the three portions of the Open Water Scuba Diver training, accommodation and meals for those from out of town, and some assistance with travel costs.
The project is aimed at bringing more young people to the sport. It is a way for the club to give back to the community for some of the support it has received in its various projects over the past number of years. The club recognizes that scuba diving, while an exciting sport, can be expensive; this scholarship will help someone who may not have the means to get started.
The application form is below. It is to be completed and returned electronically to the club at firstname.lastname@example.org along with a letter of recommendation from an adult who is not a family member, and a typewritten five hundred to one thousand word essay on a subject related to scuba diving. The deadline for application is March 31, 2023.
This scholarship will complement the two being offered by the Saskatchewan Underwater Council, one for Saskatoon and northern Saskatchewan and one for the area south of Saskatoon. Details can be found on the SUC website https://saskuc.com
