IMarEST Student Bursaries

IMarEST Student Bursaries

IMarEST bursaries (up to £500) are targeted at undergraduate and postgraduate students, cadets and apprentices studying or working in marine engineering, marine science and marine technology and related topics. The purpose of the bursaries are to encourage and support IMarEST Student members to work on technical research projects or community based projects.

The bursary can be used to support planned or existing projects, ranging from activities and events, promoting marine engineering, science and technology as a career, undertaking research in the country of residence or overseas, or undertaking other voluntary activities.

In return the awardees will need to work with the IMarEST to promote and report on their activity.
