Massachusetts Marine Trades Educational Trust (MMTET)

 



The Massachusetts Marine Trades Association (MMTA) actively supports the advancement of the recreational marine trades including careers of individuals within our industry.

In an effort to attract more young people to careers in the marine trades and to provide for marine technical education and training in MA., the MMTA Board of Directors founded the Massachusetts Marine Trades Educational Trust (MMTET).

MMTET is a non profit foundation, approved by the IRS, which funds efforts to accomplish the educational goals of the Massachusetts Marine Trades. Five trustees govern the foundation and the MMTA Education Committee serves as an advisory panel for the Trust and the Trustees. Current MMTET initiatives include establishing an institution of higher learning for marine and environmental studies called the Ocean Campus Center, assisting in the establishment and continuance of marine technology programs on the high school and college levels across the commonwealth, and the awarding of scholarships to deserving individuals pursuing a career in the MA marine trades.

MMTET is the caretaker of the William Armstrong Scholarship Awards. Bill Armstrong was a boat dealer on the south shore of Massachusetts and an original member of the MMTA as well as serving on its board of directors. Bill felt strongly that education and training are the key instruments of advancing careers. These awards may be given to a Massachusetts resident who is a high school senior or graduate pursuing an education or training at a qualified institute of higher learning, with the intent of entering or continuing to work in the recreational marine industry in Massachusetts up to $1500.00 (fifteen hundred dollars) may be awarded to a recipient.

To accomplish its goals, MMTET seeks and solicits funds. Your contributions are tax deductible. For additional information, or to apply for scholarships, or to donate funds, visit www.boatma.com/education.html or contact Ed Lofgren, MMTET Chairman, at erl@3amarine.com or call 781-749-3250
