SNAME Scholarships For Graduate And Undergraduate Levels
Scholarships in both the graduate and undergraduate levels are again being provided by The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers to encourage men and women to pursue studies in the naval architectural and marine engineering or closely related fields. Only United States or Canadian citizens are eligible.
For the Graduate Study Program, application forms have been forwarded to ship operating and shipbuilding companies, affiliated trades and to universities located in all sections of the country. Applications for graduate scholarships for the fall of 1979 should be filed with the secretary and executive director of the Society at One World Trade Center, Suite 1369, New York, N.Y. 10048, before the closing date of February 1, 1979.
The maximum value of the graduate scholarships usually covers the cost of tuition at the school selected. The Scholarships Committee will determine in each case the exact value of the graduate scholarship award. Each successful candidate may select the institution for advanced studies, subject to the approval of the Scholarship Committee.
Factors considered in making the selection include scholastic ability, the candidate's capacity to pursue advanced study, ambition, personality and other qualities indicative of prospective leadership status in the marine industry. For at least one scholarship, emphasis will be placed on recent employment of at least five years in the marine field as a factor for selection.
In addition to the Graduate Program, several undergraduate scholarships of $1,000 each are made available by the Society at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Michigan, and State University of New York Maritime College. Grants-in-Aid are also made available at the University of California at Berkeley.
Also, Webb Institute of Naval Architecture provides a tuitionfree education to all undergraduate students. Recognizing this fact, the Society supports the Webb program with annual contributions, bringing Webb indirectly into the scholarship program.
Those interested should contact the above institutions directly and not the Society, since nominations for Society Undergraduate Funds have been assigned to them. All recipients of undergraduate scholarships will be subject to the approval of the Scholarships Committee.
