The purpose of the scholarship program is to provide financial support to students who have excelled in maritime studies while allowing CMA members to connect with promising young people about to embark on maritime careers. Programs vary by school but there are multiple one-time Scholarship awards of $1,500, payable directly to the student. There will also be one $10,000 tuition reimbursement scholarship awarded.
Awards are presented to students nominated by the faculty at their school (high school, undergraduate or graduate school) based on a variety of criteria, most particularly an interest in and aptitude for pursuits within or beneficial to the maritime industry.
Last year, we awarded nearly $35,000 in scholarships among students from 7 Universities and 5 High Schools.
