Maritime Partners join hands to Increase maritime educational opportunities for Women

Women’s International Shipping and Trading Association (WISTA International) and Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (The Institute) are partnering to increase the professional competence and enhance educational opportunities for women in the maritime industry.

In a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed in London, the two organizations will offer five scholarships annually over the next 10 years to individuals nominated by WISTA International. The scholarship will cover the Foundation Diploma program at The Institute.
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 program is available to all WISTA members worldwide. Individuals must be nominated by their National WISTA Association by June 23, 2017. The first scholarship cohort will begin their studies in September 2017.

To quote from Maritime Women: Global Leadership

“In a maritime context, in women are more included as part of diverse workforce, there is a larger talent pool available for filling leadership and managerial positions, and this is undoubtedly an advantage in today’s highly competitive market.”
