IMEA Launches Scholarship Program


The International Marine Electronics Alliance, a supporting organization of the National Marine Electronics Association, is launching a marine electronics industry scholarship, the group announced.

Two students entering or currently enrolled in a trade school marine technology program will be awarded scholarships in the form of a $2,500 tuition payment to the school. The scholarships include free attendance (virtual or in-person) at entry-level NMEA electronics installer certification courses.

NMEA is inviting member companies to sponsor a scholarship at a value of $2,500 or more to increase the number of students who are awarded.

Students can fill out the IMEA scholarship application form here.

The scholarships will be awarded Sept. 23 at the NMEA Conference Awards Banquet in Orlando, Fla.
