Award Recipient


Diver Medical Education Grant: Diver Medical Technician, sponsored by The Diver Medic (WDHOF Member Chantelle Newman)

Karin Murray-Bergquist

Karin is a Ph.D. student in Folklore, currently studying at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Her interest in maritime history has led her to try to study the ocean from every possible angle, including going beneath the waves. She is also a volunteer with Ocean Bridge, through which she is producing an ocean-themed podcast, “The Deeps.” The areas of expertise held by the diving community have given her insights into the science of the ocean, as well as motivation to pursue dive training. She intends to use this scholarship to become better prepared to deal with the dangers of diving.
