Florida Harbor Pilots Association Scholarships

Each year, the Florida Harbor Pilots Association (FHPA) selects three minority cadets, from one of the seven national maritime academies who show enthusiasm and aptitude for a possible career as a state harbor pilot. The selected reipients will each receive a $2,500 scholarship, plus all their pre-approved travel expenses to attend a training session with a pilot association in Florida, where they will receive the scholarship, get hands-on experience, and be exposed to many aspects of a harbor pilot's career.
