To commemorate the tragic loss of
the 84 members of the crew of the Ocean Ranger on Feb. 15, 1982, a
scholarship and bursary program has been established by the Ocean
Ranger Disaster Fund.
These awards, valued at $500 per year, are presented to students who
are entering or pursuing a postsecondary program of studies. In selecting
candidates, preference will be given to the daughters, sons and or
widows of those who were lost. In the absence of eligible candidates
from this group, the scholarships and bursaries may be awarded to
other students at the discretion of the Ocean Ranger Scholarship Committee.
Information and application forms are available at the student awards
offices at Memorial University, College of the North Atlantic, Prince
Philip Drive campus, and the Marine Institute.
