New scholarships for women in the maritime industry

9 June 2017

WISTA International (formerly the Women’s International Shipping and Trading Association) and the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers are to offer five scholarships a year over the next 10 years to support professional education for women in the maritime industry.

The scholarships will be available to individuals nominated by WISTA International, and will cover the Institute’s foundation diploma programme, which is aimed at individuals with maritime experience interested in gaining additional practical and commercial skills and knowledge.

Women seafarers who wish to be considered for the scholarship programme should be members of WISTA and nominated by their national WISTA association. Nominations for the first year of scholarship, which begins in September 2017, should be made by 23 June 2017.
