The annual scholarship has been set up to help young people finance an education at university level, with a view to finding work within the shipping and marine insurance sectors. Each applicant must present a plan for the completion of his/her studies and how they intend to make use of the scholarship.
The students will receive their scholarships at separate events in Hong Kong and Singapore respectively.
