An integral part of our mission is to support the designers of tomorrow through our Scholarship & Mentoring Program. Our goal is to ignite a spark within those who have the innovative mind and creative passion to become the next contributor to the yacht design world. Through our application process, we encourage design students to express their passions and goals, which are then reviewed by our advisory board. A recipient is chosen and during our rendezvous awards gala, they are presented with not only a cash award but also the opportunity to work side by side with the design team of the honoree. Our hope is that one day their designs will be as celebrated as those we honor through our series.

Students interested in applying for a scholarship should contact Carol Beecher at 401.236.1866, or fill out The Designer Series Scholarship Application.
