The Bruce and Dorothy Rylander Johnson Scholarship is a $5,000 award established and funded by Bruce Johnson and Dorothy Rylander Johnson for the Faculty Advisor of the Year to recognize a student or students who exemplify outstanding contribution to the field of naval, marine, and ocean engineering studies. 
The student(s) must be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate program in naval architecture, marine or ocean engineering. The student(s) must have been a Student Member of SNAME for at least four months prior to the award. Should SNAME decide in any year that it will not give out a “Faculty Advisor of the Year Award”, The Bruce and Dorothy Rylander Johnson Scholarship may be presented in that year to another undergraduate student deemed worthy by the Scholarship Committee.
