The Institute of Marine Technology is offering three full scholarships to students in its marine technical training program.

The Institute of Marine Technology at Warner University in Lake Wales, Fla., said it established and is launching a “full ride” scholarship program available by application for students in its marine technical training program for the 2017-18 fall enrollment.

Three full scholarships of as much as $28,000 each are available, and cover full tuition costs for a one-year period, excluding housing and food. Inaugural scholarships recipients will include one male, one female and one former member of a high school bass club.

Applications for the scholarships must be submitted by Aug. 15.

Justin Maley, the institute’s director of industry relations and marine programs, said the qualification criteria include a high school degree or GED, and prospective students must be 18 or older. Scholarship candidates also must successfully meet basic mechanical assessments and pass an entrance exam before they can receive a scholarship.

“We are very pleased to make these scholarships available to deserving students who are seeking a career in the marine technical field,” Maley said in a statement. “Our IMT scholarship recipients will enjoy a great advantage by attending marine technical training in a bona fide college environment, with the best in curriculum, product and technology available anywhere in North America.”

Maley also said there is a great and increasing demand by the marine industry for qualified technicians in North America to work in retail and manufacturing capacities.

“It’s an ideal time to become a marine technician, as the need and demand has never been greater,” Maley said. “IMT not only offers an outstanding opportunity to help educate, train and develop students for an exciting industry career in the marine marketplace, but our brand new facilities, situated in a real world marina environment, including a 4,274-acre lake for testing, coupled with our instructors and our curriculum, are second to none. We invite all interested parties to apply for the scholarships or to contact us for more information about the overall IMT and Warner University program.”
