Two $1,500 scholarships will be awarded by the National Marine Representatives Association (NMRA) to outstanding students pursuing maritime trade careers. Since 2008, the NMRA has contributed to the future of the marine industry with scholarships to individuals pursuing education and a career in the maritime trades. This year, high school seniors, and college and vocational students can request an application from NMRA at info@nmraonline.org. Applications are due on July 1, 2016. Winners will be announced this summer.
“NMRA Scholarships hold a special place in the life of our organization,” said Rob Gueterman, NMRA president. “We’re always heartened to read the applications, and know that the future of the marine industry will be in such talented and capable hands.”
Several NMRA rep groups donated to increase the 2016 scholarships.

GSW & Associates and Midwest Outdoor Marketing reached the Captain level of giving, while Atlantic Marketing Company, Coatney Sales, Gulf Atlantic Marketing, Macaroni Marketing, The Merifield Company, Silverlake West Company, West Coast Sales and William F. Miller and Associates donated to the Ship’s Crew level. NMMA president Thom Dammrich helped kick off the fundraising with a contribution at NMRA’s annual Rep Night.
