Scholarship & Academic Opportunities
The Marine Technology Society is one of the oldest marine science, academic, and industry trade associations that operate globally.
Marine Technology Society has numerous regional student sections that coordinate with the Association’s industry/academic members and explore the possibilities for careers in the marine sciences and industry. Further information can be found on their website which is www.mtsociety.org
Sea Scouts and the Marine Technology Society have a Memorandum of Understanding to augment the opportunity of Sea Scouts to take part in educational opportunities; conferences/trade shows in the marine industry; and internships with member organizations. Sea Scouts have attended conferences/hearings on marine incidents (like the Mercado oil spill initial report when it was still on-going) and participate in the annual scholarship opportunities for funding of college that includes graduating High School seniors and/or attending summer camps and internships where the college age Sea Scouts are exposed to the equipment and technology used in marine science and engineering such as Remote Operated Vehicles (ROV’s) and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV’s).
In the past years, several Sea Scouts have received college scholarships as raising college freshmen and others have attended conferences.
Please refer to the specific application form for requirements for your scholarship. In most cases, you will need to submit the application, reference(s), a recommendation letter and a certified transcript. All applications and supporting documents must be submitted/postmarked by Friday, April 19.
