There were few people as passionate about sharks as Jimmy Hall. This scholarship was founded in his honor, to pass on the spirit of curiosity and excitement for sharks.  

He inspired countless people with his energy, enthusiasm and infectious personality. His unwavering hunger for life and sense of adventure had many of his friends striving to be “More Like Jimmy.” Jimmy died in 2007, during one of his many great adventures, a BASE jumping expedition to Baffin Island. 

The “More Like Jimmy” Scholarship is privately funded by an anonymous donor. It is intended for students that pursue a career in marine biology or environmental science.

Awardees can receive amounts from $1,000 to $4,000 per year depending upon year in school and dedication to their education.  Up to $10,000 in scholarship funds may be awarded yearly.
