Marine Award Program for Seamen (MAPS)

Want to get $1,000 off the cost of your training course? 

Well you can! Since 2013, The Marine Award Program for Seamen (MAPS) has given out at least 18 separate awards every year to help pay for merchant marine training. These awards will range up to $1000, and applying is free.

This program is sponsored by The Young Firm, a maritime law firm in New Orleans that exclusively serves injured maritime workers. In an attempt to provide additional resources and services outside of legal remedy, this award program was developed for those in need of financial aid for merchant marine training. The Young Firm believes the future of the offshore industry is dependent on a competent and well-trained workforce.
