Arctic Directory: Crowley awards scholarships to four students

Crowley Maritime Corp. said Maya 17 that four students from very diverse backgrounds each got a chance to attend the Maritime Studies Program of Williams College of Mystic Seaport, thanks in part to Thomas B. Crowley Sr. scholarships.

The scholarships were awarded to Virginia Steiner, Morgan Wilson, Hannah Holland and Caroline Crowell during the 2009-2010 academic year. In the fall of 2009, Crowley expanded the scholarship program with the Maritime Studies Program of Williams College and Mystic Seaport, increasing its donation from $10,000 to $20,000 a year for deserving and need-based students in the program. This has allowed four students, two in the fall and two in the spring semester, to take part in the program, instead of one student per semester. Over the years, Crowley Chairman, President and CEO, Tom Crowley Jr., has continued to give scholarships dollars to deserving students at the maritime academies and other select institutions in the U.S., Alaska and Puerto Rico in the name of his father Thomas B. Crowley Sr., who guided the company to extraordinary heights before passing away in 1994.

Since 1984, Crowley has provided more than half-a-million dollars in scholarship funding for approximately 190 students studying at maritime academies and other select institutions. The company has also donated more than $2 million over the years to support other educational programs.
