Scuba Scholars at Dive Academy Fiji
To the Next Level

We offer various levels of scholarships for locals who want to become PADI Professionals and pursue a career in diving. The students are not bound to work for us after their scholarship. 


The scholars benefit from our professional in-depth dive education from beginner to PADI Assistant Instructor. They also learn about all the background processes in a dive center and participate in our marine conservation and community programs.

Scuba Scholars - PADI Rescue Diver Course
How you can support

Although we cover the main cost of the courses, we cannot cover all and only accept a small number of scholars. The students have to pay for the PADI material, certification fees and a fuel contribution. Especially the Divemaster and Instructor programs are a financial challenge. You can sponsor a local student by paying for all or part of their education.

Dive with us - and be part of the Movement

When booking your dives on the Rainbow Reef, your dive and freediving courses with us, you automatically support our scholarship program:
We dedicate a small amount of every booking to fund the program. 

Further Social Engagement

We provide free of charge First Aid workshops to the communities in our bay and are registered as volunteer teachers at Ucunivatu Primary School, where we teach about marine conservation and protection of the environment. ​We take locals to Discovery Dives: In combination with information about the prestigious marine life in front of their doorstep, they become ocean ambassadors.
