The Landing School is now offering five scholarships for students who want a career in the marine industry but struggle to pay the cost of their education.

The Arundel, Maine-based school said the scholarships have an application process in which students are given the chance to show faculty and staff who they are and why they want to join the marine industry by answering several questions via a medium of their choice. Applicants can choose to answer the questions in a video, essay or in any other form of communication they enjoy most.

“These scholarships were designed to support those members of our community, near and far, who have the greatest desire to join the marine industry but may not have the ability to fund their education. As educators, it’s our job to do whatever we can to ensure we’re helping any student achieve their life and career goals,” The Landing School president Richard Schuhmann said in a statement.

The Imagination, Initiative, Invention (i3) Scholarship is a competitive scholarship that will be awarded on the basis of applicants’ ability to illustrate their creative skill by building an object of their choice. Three scholarships of $5,000 will be awarded.

The Women in the Marine Industry Scholarship will be awarded to women who want to pursue an education and career in the marine industry. Three scholarships of $10,000 will be awarded.

The Southern Maine Coastal Community Scholarship supports applicants who reside in the southern coastal region of Maine. Three scholarships of $5,000 will be awarded.

The Scholarship Endorsed by Alums will be awarded to applicants referred by an alumnus of the school. Three scholarships of $5,000 will be awarded.

The Landing School Family Scholarship will be awarded to an applicant who was referred by a Landing School faculty or staff member. One scholarship of $5,000 will be awarded.

The submission deadline for all five scholarships is June 22 and the award date is July 17.

The school said prospective students can apply for as many of the scholarships as they choose, but they can only win one. Only first-year students can apply. If the eligibility requirements for the scholarship are not met, the scholarship will not be awarded, the school said.
