"The scholarship was the next stepping stone needed to further my career. I would encourage anyone in the industry who is eligible to apply for the Barker Maritime Scholarship. Take the time to apply, write down your goals of where you want to be in five years’ time and formulate your cover letter based around that. Be realistic, but aim high,"
