The Hunter Goold Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a qualified individual, to be used to cover 100% of the tuition expense of the 2018 Ron Rhinehart International Aquatic Safety School®. This year, we are asking that each interested candidate submit a video. This video should that provide an overview of the qualifications of the individual asking for consideration. The video may also include any supporting testimonials or evidence of service (all on the video).

While the submitted video does not require anything more than recorded explanations of qualifications, we encourage each candidate to be creative. The Goold family will review submissions and communicate their choice to E&A staff. Please have your video submission available for E&A staff to access no later than November 10, 2017.

If you are unable to make a video submission, E&A will accept a written submission, emailed to the email address indicated below. All written submissions must be in Word or PDF and contain all the elements indicated in the criteria.
