2020 SST SCHOLARSHIP APPEAL
Make a Pledge Today to Assist a Cadet this May
Remember your Summer Sea Terms? Of course, you do! It is those experiences and memories that have propelled you into the life that you have today.
The cost of SST continues to rise each year, and many of our cadets and their families struggle to find the money to cover these expenses. Yet, they all recognize the value of the experience of the Summer Sea Term. As alumni, we are committed to – and receive satisfaction from – helping this new crop of cadets as much as we possibly can.
It is because of the generosity of our Alumni and Friends that the MCAA has been able to award over $3,177,944 in scholarships since 2004. Donations made through our annual Summer Sea Term Scholarship Appeal are added to the interest and dividends of our regular scholarship endowment investments, to arrive at a total combined amount. Our goal to-date has been to provide a minimum of $250,000 in scholarships every Spring to cadets embarking on their 1/C and 2/C cruises aboard the Empire State VI.
While the MCAA runs the Annual SST Scholarship Appeal at the beginning of each calendar year, donations to the SST Scholarship Fund are welcomed throughout the year!
