At the Welsh Port of Milford Haven the annual Scholarship Scheme was launched today offering four Pembrokeshire students the chance to win £1,500, plus work experience at the UK’s largest energy port.

Almost seventy undergraduate students have received support from the Port over the past sixteen years and completed placements across the organisation including the Engineering, PR, Environmental and HR departments.

There are four awards on offer; to be eligible applicants must have attended a Pembrokeshire secondary school and be enrolled on an undergraduate course at a British university.

Stakeholder Engagement and Communications Manager, Anna Malloy, commented “Our Scholarship Scheme is a fantastic opportunity for students to not only secure some much-needed funds while at university, but also complete meaningful placements working on real projects in a busy, professional environment. I’d like to stress that students can be on any type of course, it doesn’t have to be marine related. Over the years we’ve had people enrolled onto all sorts of subjects, from Human Nutrition to Chemistry.”

Interviews will be held in person at the Port of Milford Haven’s headquarters on Wednesday 18th December by a panel consisting of the Port’s Chairman Chris Martin, Maxine Thomas from Pembrokeshire College and Headteacher of Haverfordwest High VC School Jane Harris.

To apply to the Scholarship Scheme please visit this link for an application form. 

Applications close on 22nd November.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
