Williams-Mystic Crowley Memorial Scholarship

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Crowley continues to foster education in maritime studies through its recent scholarship grant to a deserving student at the Maritime Studies Program of Williams College and Mystic Seaport.
 
Laura Boyle was selected as the spring 2009 Thomas Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship recipient at Williams-Mystic. She received a $5,000 scholarship to attend the 17-week maritime studies program in Mystic, Conn.
 
An English major at Bryn Mawr College, Boyle has displayed her strengths through team work and community efforts in roles such as camp counselor, service trip leader, and peer mentor. In her admissions essay, Boyle also discussed her experience growing up in Madison, Conn., and how her decision to attend a landlocked school in Pennsylvania has separated her from her beloved Long Island Sound.
 
"When you are born and raised near the sea, it opens your mind, changes your sense, and challenges your view of self and your view of the world.  Once the ocean gets in your blood, you are never quite the same," Boyle wrote.

Williams-Mystic, www.williams.edu/williamsmystic, is a one-semester interdisciplinary ocean and coastal studies program integrating marine science, maritime history, marine policy, and literature of the sea. Earlier this year, Crowley announced its plans to enhance scholarship grants with the Maritime Studies Program of Williams College and Mystic Seaport beginning in the fall by increasing its donation from $10,000 to $20,000 a year for deserving and need-based students in the program.
 
Over the years, Crowley Chairman, President and CEO, Tom Crowley Jr., has continued to give scholarship dollars to deserving students at the maritime academies and other select institutions in the U.S., Alaska and Puerto Rico in the name of his father Thomas B. Crowley Sr., who guided the company before passing away in 1994.
 
Since 1984, Crowley has provided more than half-a-million dollars in scholarship funding for nearly 200 students studying at maritime academies and other select institutions. In 2006, the program expanded to Central America and to date has provided financial assistance to 15 students in that region.
