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
