IYRS expands scholarship offerings

Posted on

The International Yacht Restoration School expanded the scholarship opportunities for students applying to the Rhode Island-based school’s three full-time programs.

The scholarships, which are expected to draw a competitive pool of applicants for fall 2013 admission, are the direct result of the strong emphasis the school has placed on raising scholarship funding; in 2011, the IYRS set an ambitious goal of raising $4 million for scholarships during the 2011-2015 period.

Below is a listing of scholarship opportunities for students planning to enter the school’s full-time programs this fall in boatbuilding and restoration, marine systems or composites technology. For all named scholarships, the priority deadline is April 19 and the final deadline is July 1. IYRS named scholarships are awarded based on both demonstrated financial need and merit.

Van Beuren Charitable Trust Scholarship: $5,000 will be awarded to a student who is a Rhode Island resident.
