The Society of Maritime Industries (SMI) offers a competitive award to support students studying for qualifications in subjects related to Marine Engineering and Technology, in particular for students who have undertaken a dissertation that addresses a need in the industry with a prospect of commercial application. The Donald Maxwell Trust, which is administered by IMarEST on behalf of SMI, provides a single payment of £500 to a successful student as well as an invitation at the Trust’s expense to the SMI AGM luncheon where a certificate and the cheque will be presented to the winner.
One award of £500 and a certificate will be awarded each year. In addition, reasonable travel expenses to get to London for the SMI AGM luncheon are provided.
Dissertations must be submitted in electronic PDF accompanied by a covering letter with a supporting statement from the dissertation supervisor which describes how the dissertation fulfils the criteria.
The submission should include full name, confirmation of UK residency and email address for the nominated student. Submission of the full dissertation will be the responsibility of the university. Applications should be sent to clearly stating that the submission is an application for the SMI Donald Maxwell Award.
