Scholarships Available

In partnership with the Nova Scotia Seamanship Education Society, we at Picton Castle are excited to announce a new international scholarship. This scholarship is designed to offset the costs of enrolling in a qualified sail training program for individuals wishing to pursue a career at sea.

Scholarship berths are available on Picton Castle’s upcoming Transatlantic Voyage (October 1, 2015 – April 1, 2016).

This scholarship will be awarded to individuals who meet the following criteria:

Applicants who already have some relevant experience or marine qualifications would be at an advantage because this helps to demonstrate a serious desire to pursue a marine career. However, pre-existing experience or certification are not absolute requirements, since the scholarship is also intended to cater to entry-level training.
