A MILLION DOLLAR OPPORTUNITY: UK-based council offers staggering scholarship for young Filipinos who aspire to be future ship Captains/Chief Engineers

More than 10 years ago, the International Maritime Employers’ Council (IMEC), has started a particular cadet-training program that nurtures young Filipinos’ dream to become world-class ship officers.

According to a report posted on its website, over 600 cadets have successfully completed, with 480 more undergoing their Enhanced Cadet Training Program.

These cadet scholars enjoy free tuition, food, accommodation, uniform and first class trainings, among other perks, courtesy of IMEC shipping company member – sponsors. Take note as well that they are being honed in none other school but the Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific (MAAP), a topnotch maritime institution of higher learning in the country.

Like the NSA Cadet Program, the scholars have to complete a 2-1-1 maritime education scheme. Means, the first two years are spent in school, and the third year is set at sea for apprenticeship. The latter provides best chances to learn how to live and earn $$$$$ at sea.

Finally, they return to MAAP, after more or less a year, to complete their college degree.

And what happens after school will perhaps stun you.

If other graduates of ‘nautical’ or ‘Mar-E’ have to find and kneel before shipping companies just to get an apprenticeship job, IMEC leveled-up cadets, on the other hand, swiftly return to their respective shipping companies either as junior officers or to be promoted as ships’ officers soon.

Lucky chosen few, right? 🙂

If you can hitch your wagon to a star and have dreamt of travelling the world while enjoying a hefty salary, apply for a scholarship grant today and join IMEC seafarers’ growing family.

Who are qualified to apply?

Anyone who wants to be a seafarer is invited to apply but IMEC has set the following requirements to be accepted in the program.
