Westlawn announces new scholarships

Posted on

Hargrave Custom Yachts and The Taylor Made Group have providing funding to create scholarships for students of the Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology.

The Hargrave Memorial Scholarship Fund, in memory of Westlawn alumnus Jack Hargrave, is for advanced students enrolling in Westlawn Modules 3 or 4. Students with a grade-point average of 85 percent or higher will qualify for a $500 scholarship. Students must have passed at least lesson 19 in Module 2 to enroll in Module 3.

For those interested in learning more about Jack Hargrave, a book about him is available from Westlawn. Sales from this book are donated to Westlawn.

The Taylor Made Scholarship, in memory of Willard “Bill” Taylor, is for intermediate students enrolling in Module 2 who have done well in their Module 1 or Yacht Design Lite studies. Students enrolling in Module 2 with a grade-point average of 85 percent or higher, will qualify for a $250 scholarship. Students must have passed at least lesson 10 to enroll in Module 2.

Both scholarships are effective June 15 and cannot be applied retroactively. The scholarships will remain available on a first-come first-served basis for those students who meet the scholarship criteria until the funds are expended. The money will be applied to students’ initial payment and first monthly payment(s) if they chose the monthly payment plan.

“Particularly in the current economic environment, Westlawn is always looking for ways to help students with their tuition,” said Westlawn director Dave Gerr in a statement. “We welcome contributions for scholarship funds to make it easier for more students to enroll in Westlawn to fulfill their dreams and meet industry needs. We have consistently had more positions to fill than graduates to fill them. All donations are fully tax deductible.”

Students wishing to apply for either of these scholarships should contact Westlawn student services coordinator Patti Schulte at pschulte@abycinc.org.
