Island Packet Lightens the Load for Westlawn Students

Boatbuilder offers scholarship to design students

To help aspiring boat designers in launching their careers, Island Packet Yachts will provide a new scholarship to students enrolled in the The Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology. The $250 scholarship will be awarded to all Westlawn students who enroll in Module Two of the four-module yacht-design program, or who transfer to Module Two from the Yacht Design Lite program.

The scholarship is available to students enrolling after September 1, who have maintained a grade-point average of 85 percent or higher. The scholarship will remain available to all qualifying students until the funds are expended.
