Slater Fund

The Slater Fund provides scholarships of up to £17,500 to help ratings and other seafarers study for a first certificate of competency as an officer. The Fund is administered by the Marine Society in association with Nautilus International.

If you’re a Merchant Navy rating considering career progression, the scholarship can be used to offset the direct costs of training and accommodation, travel, learning resources and living expenses whilst undertaking the qualification.

Contact the Marine Society for further information.
