The JW Slater Fund offers substantial financial awards to help British ratings, electrotechnical officers and yacht crew study for a first certificate of competency. The money can be used towards the costs of any necessary full or part-time education and to provide some financial support during college phases for those off pay.

Named in honour of former MNAOA (a predecessor union to Nautilus International) general secretary John Slater, the awards are made to selected UK-resident applicants aged 20 or over. More than 1,400 Slater Fund awards have been made by the Union since the scheme was launched in 1977.

The Slater Fund is administered on behalf of Nautilus by the Marine Society, an educational charity for seafarers. Find out more – and get your application started – on the Marine Society's Slater Scholarships page.
