International Yacht Restoration School awards six scholarships

'IYRS'    .

The International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS) in Newport Rhode Island, has awarded six scholarships to students entering the school’s full-time programs this fall.

The majority of these scholarships are new awards and the direct result of the school’s aggressive push to build its scholarship offerings and open more opportunity to qualified candidates.

In 2011 IYRS set an ambitious goal of raising $4 million for scholarships during the 2011–2015 period. 'Many of our most talented applicants are challenged financially to pursue their career goals. Merit-based scholarships recognize their talent and provide the essential aid that facilitates their education at IYRS,' said President Terry Nathan.

'We are, thus, very thankful to the donors that make these merit scholarships possible.'

The recipients of these scholarships are a talented group of men and women who range in age from 18 to 46 and bring diverse educational backgrounds and life experiences to the school.

IYRS offers three full-time programs in Boatbuilding and Restoration, Marine Systems, and Composites Technology.

IYRS Craftsmanship Scholarship: Holden O’Brien, Providence (R.I.)
Marine Systems Scholarship: Evan Lamphere, Hopkinton (R.I.)
Van Beuren Charitable Trust Scholarship for Fine Craftsmanship: Oliver Dennis-Bale, Newport (R.I.)
Marine Trades Scholarship for Women: Cynthia Tufts, Taunton (Mass.)
Hope Goddard Iselin Fund: Audrey White, Andover (Mass.)
Antique & Classic Boat Society Scholarship: James Delaguila, Jersey City (N.J.)

The Marine Systems and Composites Technology programs are six-month programs; a new round of scholarship funding will be available to students applying for the March-August 2013 term.

IYRS offers three full-time programs from its two campuses in Newport and Bristol. Each facility is uniquely suited to the programs offered at its locale. The Newport waterfront campus—with its historic buildings from 1831 and 1903—is home to the Boatbuilding & Restoration program and the site of notable historic restorations, including the restoration of the 1885 Coronet. The Bristol teaching facility is home to the Marine Systems and Composites Technology programs and is located at the Franklin Street Marine Corridor, an industrial/educational complex where students mix with local industry.
