University of Tasmania Merchant Navy War Memorial Fund Scholarship for UG Students 2024 ( Up to $3,500 )

University of Tasmania Merchant Navy War Memorial Fund Scholarship for UG Students 2024 ( Up to $3,500 )

These scholarships provided by The Merchant Navy War Memorial Fund (MNWMF), commemorate the service, courage, and quiet heroism, of the 862 Australian Merchant Mariners that sacrificed their lives for their country, in WWI (184) and WWII (678). It is said, during the second world war, the rate of merchant sailors who died was higher than Australia’s fighting services. Their contribution to the war effort was vital. They crewed hospital ships, and transported food, water, fuel, ammunition, and so many other vital supplies. The constant and unrelenting attacks on those merchant ships amounted to attacks on our front-line soldiers.

The vision statement of the Merchant Navy War Memorial Fund reads: To ensure that the Australian Merchant NavyA title emblazoned in battle and honoured in freedom is recognised as an important part of Australian Maritime History and Social Culture.

These scholarships serve as a reminder to younger generations of those seeking a career within the Australian maritime sector, of the proud and honoured history of Australia’s Merchant Navy, in WWI and WWII and also the continuing important role of merchant seafarers, since the end of WWII.
