MaritimeONE Scholarship

The MaritimeONE (Outreach NEtwork) is the key manpower initiative for maritime stakeholders to collectively raise awareness of the maritime industry as well as to profile education and career opportunities to the students and committed individuals.

The MaritimeONE initiative was launched in April 2007 by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF), Association of Singapore Marine Industries (ASMI) and Singapore Shipping Association (SSA).

The MaritimeONE partnership activities include industry awareness talks, scholarship offers, student outreach events and regular networking events for employers and tertiary students.

Singapore Maritime Foundation

The SMF, established on 27th January 2004, was created to forge a strong partnership between the public and private sectors.

As a private sector-led body, we provide the industry with a clear and representative voice. We also benefit from strong industry support, which has enabled us to tap directly into the community for new ideas and initiatives that benefit the maritime fraternity here. Our members cover the entire spectrum of the industry, including the marine, shipping, port and ancillary services sectors.

We also work closely with the Singapore Government to advance our joint vision of developing Singapore into a premier International Maritime Centre (IMC).

As the bridge between Government and the private maritime sector, we help initiate ideas and drive proposals to boost the sector's development and grow the overall Singapore economy.

Education and Training

To ensure that Singapore's maritime community continues functioning like a well-oiled machine, it needs well-trained people equipped with the relevant skills. The Singapore Government and the private sector have implemented a comprehensive range of programmes aimed at growing Singapore's pool of maritime professionals.

As the private sector champion of the maritime industry, SMF is constantly on the look-out for new partners to collaborate on:

Maritime Singapore Connect

The Maritime Singapore Connect (MSC) Office is part of a SkillsFuture initiative by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. Started in 2016, the unit under the Singapore Maritime Foundation helps to connect maritime employers, industry associations, the government and schools with students, jobseekers and the general public.

As a central access point for target audiences of varied profiles, the MSC Office elevates existing profiling efforts of the maritime industry and provides Singaporeans with easy access to maritime education, training and job opportunities.

Students and jobseekers can now get connected on the multiple pathways to a rewarding career in maritime with information on education and career options, internships, scholarships, learning journeys, place-and-train schemes and training programmes.
