PADI Foundation Accepting Applications for Aquatic Research and Education

The PADI Foundation encourages and supports research and education related to aquatic environments. Since 1992, the foundation has awarded nearly $4.7 million to almost nine hundred projects.

In 2018, the foundation will award grants of up to $20,000 to support projects that enrich mankind's understanding of and concern for aquatic environments; increase understanding of sport diving physics and physiology and add to the scientific understanding of man's relationship and ability to survive in the underwater environment; and/or improve understanding of, and response to, hazards to humans and ecosystems related to climate change in coastal and ocean environments. Generally, the foundation will not fund overhead or other indirect expenses.

To be eligible, applicants must be recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

For complete program guidelines, information about previously awarded grants, and application instructions, see the PADI foundation website.
