Morton S. Bouchard Jr. Memorial Scholarship

SUNY Maritime College
Fall 2017 Scholarship Award Recipients

Supporting education is one of our most valued endeavors, which has lead us to form the Morton S. Bouchard Jr. Memorial Scholarship, and build strong relationships with many Maritime Colleges and Universities. 

The Morton S. Bouchard Jr. Memorial Scholarship is named after Bouchard’s former President & CEO, Mr. Morton S. Bouchard Jr., who is current President & CEO, Morton S. Bouchard III’s, father.  

The scholarship is in memory of Mort Bouchard Jr.’s passion for the Maritime Industry, and his belief to always give back and support others.

The scholarship is awarded each year to students who meet the following criteria:  

  • Good academic standing
  • Pursuit of deck license and a TOAR
  • Demonstrated leadership skills
  • Demonstrated interest in pursuing a career aboard tugboats and/or petroleum barges
During the Fall 2017 semester, SUNY Maritime College awarded this scholarship to four (4) deserving students.  With different interests and career goals in mind, each student will utilize the scholarship to propel their future as a successful Merchant Mariner.
