Eleven (11) Reg­is­tered Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neers who bridged to Bach­e­lor of Science in Marine En­gi­neer­ing were given schol­ar­ship grants by the Prov­ince of Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal rep­re­sented by Gover­nor Al­fredo Mara?on, and the Gover­nor elect Eu­ge­nio “Bong” Lac­son with the Pres­i­dent of VMA, Dr. El­iz­a­beth Orola Sal­abas and the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Mar­itime Man­ning Com­pa­nies – Engr.

Inc., Mr. Rey­mar Paul Roxas of Phoenix Mar­itime Corp., C/E Peter Fadul of Ver­i­tas Mar­itime Cor­po­ra­tion.

These 11 stu­dents were al­ready hold­ers of the 5 - year Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing cre­den­tials and will pur­sue the 6 months BSMARE under the bridg­ing pro­gram of CHED and MA­RINA.

Under the MOA, the pro­vin­cial government obliges to cover the tu­ition and other school fees of the stu­dents, while, the mar­itime schools will pro­vide ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing to the schol­ars.

On the other hand, the Man­ning com­pa­nies will han­dle the on­board cadet­ship train­ing on their ves­sels, and even­tu­ally hire them af­ter grad­u­a­tion.

Through the schol­ar­ship, Sal­abas be­lieved that the school, through its VMA Train­ing Cen­ter has as well aug­mented and strength­ened its Study Now Pay Later Pro­gram with the help of Mar­itime Man­ning agen­cies and the Prov­ince of Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal and hoped to pro­duce a glob­ally com­pet­i­tive mar­itime grad­u­ates.
