As a MaritimeONE scholar, you will be exposed and invited to numerous networking and industry events.

MaritimeONE scholars will be invited to events such as maritime conferences, networking events and industry gatherings to network and build connections with industry professionals and likeminded individuals.

Scholars will also be able to attend learning journeys and educational tours hosted by maritime organisations which supplements the knowledge acquired in school. They are offered internship opportunities with sponsoring companies during their term breaks. Scholars also have the flexibility to choose between a bonded or a non-bonded scholarship.

Lastly, as a MaritimeONE scholar you will get opportunities to work with SMF and other working partners to profile the maritime industry by appearing on promotional campaigns, advertorials in newspapers, youth-centric publications and other potential medias.
