The CIMarE National Scholarship Award
The Institute’s scholarship award was created in 2014 and is intended to recognize the outstanding achievement and potential of students attending Canada’s post-secondary marine training institutions. The value of the award is presently $3,000.
All applications will be considered. The Institute’s National Council will consider applications during its spring (April-May) meeting and announce the award at that year’s Mari-Tech Conference and Exhibition. Therefore, every year, the deadline will be March 31st.
One award will ordinarily be made annually. Previous recipients of the scholarship may apply in successive years, provided they are continuing in a full-time program toward a marine engineering academic diploma and an operating license or certificate.
Eligibility for the scholarship award: The award is available to all Canadian citizens and Canadian permanent residents enrolled on a full-time basis in a post-secondary marine engineering education and training program, which program has as its central goal the granting of a marine engineering diploma and a government-conferred marine engineering operating designation or certificate.
A primary qualifying requirement for the Award is merit, together with the candidate’s potential to succeed in a career of marine engineering. The Council may also consider financial need in deserving applications.
Applying for the scholarship award: Applications must be sent (in confidence) to the CIMarE National Administrator by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by mail* by March 31st. An application letter of two pages is required (i.e. about 800 words). Applications should ideally be accompanied by one or two letters of reference, notably from training supervisors and academic instructors, and by a transcript of academic grades in the applicant’s program to date.
