As part of the Sea Your Future aim to support and encourage our future marine professionals, the IMarEST offers multiple awards and funding across the engineering, science and technology disciplines for students, cadets and apprentices.
European International Subrace
The fourth biennial European International Submarine Race (eISR) took place from the 3rd to the 12th of July 2018 in Gosport, England. Teams of University students race their human-powered submarines against the clock around a demanding slalom course in a unique sporting and engineering challenge.
Awards & Funding
IMarEST Student Bursaries
IMarEST student bursaries are targeted at undergraduate and postgraduate students, cadets and apprentices studying or working in marine engineering, marine science and marine technology and related topics. The purpose of the bursaries are to encourage and support IMarEST Student members to work on technical research projects or community based projects.
The bursary can be used to support planned or existing projects, ranging from activities and events, promoting marine engineering, science and technology as a career, undertaking research in the country of residence or overseas, or undertaking other voluntary activities.
Lady Hamlyn Award
The Lady Hamlyn Award is aimed at Apprentices who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to their professional development in the marine sector. The award aims to help support apprentices, throughout the course of their apprenticeship and ease their transition into a maritime career.

Stanley Gray Fellowship
The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) awards a number of Stanley Gray Fellowships every year to selected candidates judged to be of outstanding potential to enable a significant piece of work to be undertaken in an approved marine engineering/science/technology subject to Doctorate (PhD) or post-Doctorate level.
David Henderson Inspiring Journey Grant
Each year the IMarEST supports the best idea for an original, exciting, and exceptional journey, giving the winner a £5,000 grant. It is important that the project takes you somewhere fresh, different and original. Your journey needs really to matter to you, but also needs to be one that leads you to tell a story in a way that will inspire people to think about the oceans and seas, and perhaps think differently about the sea and how it is used. Find out how to apply here.
The marine environment offers a range of varied, challenging and fascinating careers. With 70% of the earth’s surface covered by oceans, and 90% of the world’s trade carried by ship, it’s hardly surprising that there are lots of related career opportunities, especially if you’re interested in science, technology and engineering!

Join a Student Section
IMarEST Student Sections are a new initiative to support student members of the IMarEST at universities, colleges and academies around the world.
With help from a local IMarEST branch, and access to funding for activities on campus, Student Sections aim to expand knowledge, share career advice, develop skills and provide networking opportunities to IMarEST Student Members during and after their studies.
