The MRAA Educational Foundation and the American Boat & Yacht Council have partnered to provide scholarships to attend one of eight ABYC technical work force training and certification courses offered throughout the United States and Canada.

The scholarships will be available to all MRAA members in good standing and will include course fees, the study guide and the certification examination free of charge to those awarded the scholarship. A total of 10 scholarships, worth up to $849 each, will be awarded through Dec. 31.
