The Next Swell was created in part for the purpose of providing financial academic scholarships to exceptional undergraduate and graduate student candidates in pursuit of degrees in the associated fields of marine biology and marine conservation.
The Next Swell is a nonprofit organization, formed for the purpose of cultivating future generations of marine conservationists and scientists. In addition to the efforts for the protection of marine environments, The Next Swell believes very strongly in promoting a culture of inclusion and diversity within marine conservation, and welcomes all academic applicants and event participants regardless of race, color, sex, age, ethnicity, national origin, marital status, sexual preference, mental or physical disability.
We will be awarding multiple scholarships of $2,000. Scholarships are merit-based and will be awarded to the most qualified applicants who display a passion for marine conservation. Applications will be open from January 1st to April 1st. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
