The National Marine Representatives Association is offering a $2,500 scholarship to an outstanding student pursuing education and a career in the maritime trades.

A promising student who was awarded an NMRA scholarship, Andrew Grossi, will graduate this spring from the Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology in its yacht design program.

"NMRA helps students pursue their dreams of working in the boat business by lessening the financial burden of a college education," said Grossi in a statement. "NMRA members and staff were all very supportive and encouraging in my endeavors."

Since 2008, NMRA has contributed to the future of the marine industry with its scholarship. Past recipients have gone on to vocations in a wide range of fields, including boatbuilding, logistics, naval design and the merchant marines.

Grossi grew up boating on the Hudson River, and New Hampshire and Massachusetts coasts. A registered architect, today his practice marries land and sea by serving the building and marine communities.

The application can be downloaded here and is due April 1. Educational institutions are urged to promote the scholarship widely to their students. The winner will be announced this summer.
