A Rising Tide, in collaboration with Ocean First and Ocean First Education, is thrilled to award scholarships to five underrepresented Colorado students for the Spring 2019 semester.

The A Rising Tide scholarship includes:

  • Three marine science short courses

  • Open Water Scuba Diver course

  • Mask, snorkel, fins and all scuba gear

  • Two all-inclusive open water dive trips

Five lucky students between 8th and 11th grade will receive an A Rising Tide scholarship on December 14th, 2018. Please refer to the submission guidelines before sending in your 1-2 minute pitch video.

Scholars’ experiences will be filmed and shared throughout the semester in weekly webisodes.

Scholars will be responsible for:

  • Vlogging 2-3 times a week

  • 2-3 community events and/or fieldtrips during the semester

Due to the nature of the scholarship, applicants must reside in the Denver/Boulder metro area or be willing to commute to Boulder, CO. The scuba classes will be held at Ocean First at 3015 Bluff St., Boulder, CO.  A Rising Tide will assist with transportation to and from Ocean First if needed.

Students and their parent or legal guardian must sign the scholarship agreement and adhere to the scholarship guidelines set forth by A Rising Tide, LLC.
