Scholarship Giving

Your support is critical.  It is through your generosity that SNAME is able to fund and support these many important scholarships every year.  Thank you for giving to this great cause.

The Power of Scholarships

Hundreds of SNAME members have found vital support for their career choices through our Scholarship program.  Glenn Ashe is just one example. 

"Upon leaving naval service, I decided to try to make myself into a naval architect. Without the SNAME scholarship this would have been an impossible goal and I credit that scholarship with the 40 years of fulfilling practice that I have enjoyed in this field."

Glenn M. Ashe, VP of Gov't Operations, ABS

Endowing a Scholarship

A number of families and coalitions of Society members have endowed scholarships to honor and/or memorialize an individual of significance to or deeply interested in the professions of naval architecture and marine engineering.  SNAME welcomes the opportunity to explore estabishing additional endowed scholarships with those who wish to honor an individual or individuals in this way.   A minimum contribution of $50,000 is necessary to endow a scholarship.

For more information about endowing a scholarship to recognize an individual or organization, contact Scholarships Committee Chair Mr. Dave Chapman at
