Crowley Awards Scholarships to Two Pennsylvania Students in the Williams-Mystic Maritime Studies Program.

Crowley recently awarded Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarships to Ariel Zhou and Caiti Campbell, who are taking part in the Maritime Studies Program of Williams College and Mystic Seaport this spring. They were chosen for their strong academic records, interest in maritime studies and financial need.
 

Zhou, a native of Nanjing, China, is studying biology at Pennsylvania’s Bryn Mawr College. She joined the Williams-Mystic Maritime Studies Program to gain a broader perspective of all aspects of marine science and maritime history. Zhou plans to use her experience to pursue graduate degrees in biology.
 

Campbell, a native of New Jersey’s Barnegat Bay, is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in environmental communications with a minor in maritime studies at Pennsylvania’s Moravian College of Bethlehem. She plans to apply what she learns in the program to her next endeavor as a park ranger at Alaska’s Kenai Fjords National Park this summer.
 

Recently, Zhou and Campbell, along with 22 other program classmates, went on a harbor tour of Seattle onboard Crowley’s tug, Guardsman, as part of their Pacific Coast field trip. The Williams-Mystic Maritime Studies Program is a joint effort of Williams College and Mystic Seaport, which brings a unique hands-on approach to maritime education for students from various colleges all over the country.  It's a semester-long program centered on three field trips to the Pacific, Gulf, and Atlantic Coasts.  Crowley offers scholarship opportunities for two students per semester who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford tuition for the program. 


Since 1984, Crowley has provided more than half-a-million dollars in scholarship funding for more than 200 students studying at maritime academies and other select institutions in the U.S., Alaska, Puerto Rico and Central America. In 1994, Crowley Chairman, President and CEO, Tom Crowley Jr., established the Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship Program, in honor of his father, and has also donated more than $2 million over the years to support other educational programs.
