Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers Scholarship for WISTA members

In June 2017, the Women’s International Shipping and Trading Association (WISTA International) and the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers(ICS) partnered to increase the professional competence and enhance educational opportunities for women in the maritime industry.

The two organisations signed an MOU,  offering five scholarships annually over the next 10 years to individuals nominated by WISTA International. The scholarship covers the Foundation Diploma programme at The Institute.

The goal of the scholarship programme is to provide individuals with deeper knowledge of the maritime industry– the Foundation Diploma is ideal for individuals with maritime experience who are interested in gaining additional practical and commercial skills and knowledge. In addition to a general shipping component, the diploma allows an individual to select a specialized subject area. These are dry cargo chartering, ship operations and management, ship sale and purchase, tanker chartering, liner trades, port agency, logistics and multimodal transport, port and terminal management, offshore support industry, shipping law, maritime insurance, and shipping finance.

The scholarship programme is available to all WISTA members worldwide. Individuals must be nominated by their National WISTA Association and selection is being made by a specially appointed WISTA HR Committee. For more info on the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers please visit: https://www.ics.org.uk

WISTA International HR Committee is responsible for coordinating the ICS Scholarship together with the Presidents of the National WISTA Associations.
