The Hunter Goold Memorial Scholarship was first awarded to Christina Brisbin in 2012 and has been awarded to a qualified individual each year since. The $1500.00 scholarship covers 100% of the tuition expense of the Ron Rhinehart International Aquatic Safety School®.
FOR 2019 – E&A will offer an additional $1,000.00 (to be applied toward the recipient’s hotel lodging accommodations at the Arizona Grand) for the winner of this scholarship, bringing the total value of the scholarship to $2500.00! If you have ever considered applying but were hesitant because of the hotel expense, now may be the perfect time!
As in past years, we are asking that each interested candidate submit a short 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 30, 2018.
The video must include the candidates:
- Full Name
- Position at the facility
The video should highlight the following, where applicable (note that these items are not absolute requirements to win – the Goold Family wants to pick the worthiest submission and having any of these items may make you stand out:

- Past or current service in the Military of someone related to the candidate
- Organizational involvement awards (such as an Eagle Scout or Gold Award)
