Undergraduate students from Pembrokeshire are invited to apply for a Port of Milford Haven Scholarship.
The Port of Milford Haven’s annual Scholarship Scheme is now receiving applications from which four students will be selected to receive a financial award of £1,500, together with an expenses-paid, three week work placement at the Port during summer 2019.
Having supported over sixty students since it was introduced in 2003, the initiative continues to help local students during their studies and boost their future career prospects.
“We are looking forward to meeting another group of Pembrokeshire’s outstanding achievers”, said Anna Malloy, Stakeholder Engagement and Communications Manager. “Every year the interviewing panel are hugely impressed with the standard of applications and the enthusiasm and ambition shown by Pembrokeshire students and I particularly look forward to the work placements which students consistently tell us they value, in addition to the financial award. The placement provides them with demonstrable skills and adds weight to their CV’s and many of our past students have gone on to be very successful in their chosen careers.”
Sitting on the judging panel will be Chair of the Port of Milford Haven Chris Martin, Head of Safeguarding and Learner Services at Pembrokeshire College Maxine Thomas and Pat James, Chair of Governors at Milford Haven School.
To be eligible, students must be on a degree course at a British university and have completed the majority of their secondary education in Pembrokeshire. Applications must be completed online by midnight on Sunday 11th November at https://www.mhpa.co.uk/scholarships/
