March 7 is the deadline for high school seniors interested in applying for the 2022 Norm Manly Youth Maritime Training Association Scholarship.

The Youth Maritime Training Association, a Washington state non-profit organization, is seeking students interested in a maritime or ocean biology career. The association plans to present scholarships from its sponsors ranging from $1,500 to $5,000, with the potential of adding bonus scholarships for those pursuing sea-going maritime careers.

To be eligible, applicants must be Washington state residents and a high school senior planning to attend a maritime school or training program after the 12th grade.

“Our mission is to inspire high school students to look into the many career opportunities in the maritime field,” YMTA Chair Roger Ottenbach said.

Applications are due by 5 p.m. on March 7 and must include an application form, a short essay, a current, unofficial transcript and a letter of support from a teacher or community leader.
