With the application deadline of April 15 approaching, the Seafarers Health and Benefits Plan (SHBP) has set up an email address – [email protected] – that may be used for submissions.
Each year, the SHBP makes scholarships available to qualified individuals who are looking to further their education. The 2022 program will offer up to eight awards totaling $132,000. Three scholarships will be designated for Seafarers while five will be targeted for spouses and dependents. One of the endowments reserved for Seafarers totals $20,000 and is intended to help defray the costs associated with attending a four-year, college-level course of study. The remaining two are in the amount of $6,000 each and are designed as two-year awards for study at a post-secondary vocational school or community college. Each of the five scholarships for spouses and dependents is for $20,000.
