Scholarships

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.
