The Hydrographic Society of America (THSOA) encourages college/university students to consider a career in hydrographic surveying. THSOA and its chapters provide several student scholarships in order to assist students with academic costs.
Without the help of our officers, volunteers, members and event sponsors we would not be able to provide these scholarships and we thank you for your generosity. If you have any scholarship questions or concerns please contact the administrative assistant.
NSPS - THSOA HYDROGRAPHER CERTIFICATION INFORMATION
The program was established in 1981 primarily to identify those individuals that were qualified to conduct the rigorous hydrographic surveys needed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Office of Coast Survey under NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). Since that time over 300 individuals have been certified as meeting the minimum five year experience requirement and core competencies of a professional hydrographer.
THSOA SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION
