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.

Applications close on 22nd November.

#Ports&Shipping - Time is running out for Pembrokeshire students in south Wales to apply to the Port of Milford Haven’s annual Scholarship Scheme.

The deadline for applications is at the end of this week, so don’t hesitate - apply now to be in with a chance of securing one of four awards of £1,500 as well a sought-after work placement next year. To be eligible, students must be attending a British university following an undergraduate course and have spent the majority of their secondary education in Pembrokeshire.

Since the scheme was launched in 2003, over sixty people from a wide range of backgrounds have benefitted from the scholarships. There are no restrictions on the subjects that students are enrolled onto as the projects offered during the placements can be tailored to suit their specialist subject area or interests. Over the past few years the Port has welcomed students following courses such as Environmental Science, Geography, Mechanical Engineering and Music and were subsequently placed within the engineering, environmental and marketing departments.

The judging panel this year will consist of the Chairman of the Port of Milford Haven, Chris Martin; Maxine Thomas, Head of Safeguarding and Learner Services at Pembrokeshire College and Chair of Governors at Milford Haven School, Pat James.

To apply to the Port’s Scholarship Scheme, please visit this link here by this Sunday 11th November. Anyone with any queries can get in touch on [email protected] or 01646 696159.
