Underwater Archaeology Scholarship

We wanted to inform you about the Women Divers Hall of Fame Cecelia Connelly Memorial Scholarship for Underwater Archaeology. Mary Connelly contacted us about this scholarship which was named after my mother. Cecelia Connelly had a deep and abiding fascination with history, archaeology and the ocean. She had been a diving instructor of some repute and had been inducted into the Women Divers Hall of Fame in 2000. When she died of cancer in 2003, her family set up this scholarship within the Women Divers Hall of Fame, as she had been a very proud member of the organization.
The scholarship is for $2500, to be used to support a woman graduate or undergraduate student, currently enrolled and in good standing, in an accredited academic program in Underwater Archaeology.The information on the website, details not only the process for applying for the Cecelia Connelly scholarship, but also the complete list of scholarships available through the Women Divers Hall of Fame. The website is www.wdhof.org/index2.shtml and all applications are due November 15, 2008. If you or anyone you know has any questions please contact Mary Connelly at Mary_Connelly@uml.edu.
If you know of a female student who might be interested in this scholarship, please let them know about this opportunity.
