PROPELLER CLUB SCHOLARSHIPS
The Propeller Club provides scholarships each year for graduating Brevard High School students who have been accepted to post-secondary education in a maritime related field including maritime law or law enforcement, a federal or state maritime academy, marine sciences and engineering, maritime vocational/technical training, or maritime related transportation and logistics programs. Public school students should use the application process at the Brevard Schools Foundation online portal.  Private school students should email propellerclubcanaveral@gmail.com for an application. Students should talk to their high school counselors for more information or help with the application.  

Candidates must reside in Brevard County, and be a permanent Florida Resident.  Applicants must have at least a 2.75 GPA and must submit one letter of recommendation with the application. Students must submit a 250-500 word essay outlining education and career goals and how they relate to the maritime industry. An interview with applicants may be requested.
