The Seamen’s Church Institute is now accepting applications for the 2017 Leonard W. & Katherine C. Hayward Maritime Memorial Scholarship. Applicants must be students interested in pursuing maritime occupations and residents of Newport County.
The Hayward Memorial Scholarship was established through the Seamen’s Church Institute to support students of all ages who are preparing for employment in a wide range of maritime careers. This annual scholarship of $1,000 is given in memory of Leonard W. Hayward, former SCI Board President and his wife Kitty, an ardent volunteer for Seamen’s.
We had such a talented pool of applicants this year that we couldn’t choose just one recipient for the Maritime Memorial Scholarship! Zoe Clougher and Thomas Dunn – we wish you success in your maritime studies and a great first year of college!
