Maritime Scholarships/Paid Internships 4 L.B. High Schoolers

...While not diving specific, the following info may prove valuable if your son or daughter is not happy unless doing something under, or on, the ocean...
...The Port of Long Beach just opened the application process for Long Beach area high school juniors and seniors to apply for paid internships durng the summer. The program gives students a chance to explore careers in the marine transportation industry. Apps/info is available at: academy.polb.com..........The experience gained just might open the door for a high paying job in the maritime industry in areas of marine transportation, logistics, international trade and other port related jobs. Applications are due by March 1st.
...College scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 are available and are disbursed during four college years. To date, the port has awarded over $721,000 to local students
,,.Students interested in a maritime career should also look into the CA State University program offering four year degrees at Cal Maritime (Vallejo, CA), where my son graduated. He is now making good money as part of the crew on a long range sportfishing boat out of San Diego...catching big fish, having ocean adventures and getting paid for it....not a bad way to go thru life when you are still young!
