Winter 2020 Scholarship Winners

The Captain Richard Phillips Lane Kirkland Maritime Trust is pleased to announce our scholarship recipients!

We are honored to assist these deserving and very hardworking students with their dreams of achieving USCG licensing as US Merchant Mariners and pursuing careers in the US Maritime industry. These students will also receive their undergraduate degrees in a variety of fields related to the industry.

We congratulate them on their successes and outstanding track records of achievement. The numbers of applicants continue to grow with each cycle and their individual records are most impressive. The following students will receive $1000.00 toward their educational pursuits.

Forbes Hart relayed in his essay the financial struggles of trying to complete his education. “ I am applying for this scholarship because, without funding, I would not be able to accomplish my goal of becoming a licensed engineer… This scholarship may be the deciding factor of whether I get to accomplish one of the most important goals in my life.“

Patrick Cloud shared, “This scholarship would be incredibly helpful to me as I am an independent self-supporting adult who is returning to school with very limited financial resources. I am stretching to pay for school entirely on my own …” By the way, he is carrying a 3.95 GPA!

Thank you again to our wonderful donors and sponsors for the events we have held the past year. It is your partnership which enables the Trust to distribute these funds to our future mariners and leaders of the industry.

YOU ARE HELPING ENSURE A BRIGHT FUTURE FOR THE INDUSTRY AND MAKING DREAMS COME TRUE.
