A Tradition Carried On

On Friday, April 30, 2004, the SUNY Maritime College Alumni Association distributed the first scholarship awards of its second century. Founded in 1903, the Alumni Association, a privately funded, volunteer managed, charitable association of graduates of the Maritime College and its predecessor institutions, which is not affiliated with the State of New York and receives no government support, exists to advance the professional interests of the Maritime College, its alumni, faculty, and students. Funds for the scholarships were raised through various private donations to the Alumni Association's national board, as well as to its various local chapters, most notably. Long Island.

Twenty-eight scholarships were distributed to assist U.S. Maritime Service Cadets meet tuition and fee expenses associated with their participation in Summer Sea Term 2004 aboard Maritime College's Training Ship 'Empire State,' pictured in the adjacent photo, which departs the College's New York City Campus on May 15. Upon graduation, the Cadets will be licensed U.S. Merchant Marine Officers, will have accredited Bachelor's Degrees in disciplines related to the maritime industry, and will be eligible for commissions in our Nation's various sea services.
