Scholarships for students of faculties of maritime studies

If you are a full-time student at a faculty of maritime studies, you can apply for a scholarship in the amount of 159,27 EUR per month awarded by the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure

The Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure awards scholarships in the amount of 159,27 EUR per month to students studying at faculties of maritime studies.

The aim of the scholarship is to train the best possible professional staff on ships of the Croatian merchant navy as a guarantee for the safety of navigation, protection of human lives and protection of the marine environment, and to increase the quality of education and improve maritime affairs.

Scholarship conditions

In addition to the application for participation in the public tender published every year by the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure, the basic conditions that the students of maritime studies must meet are the following:
  • full-time students;
  • a non-repeat of an academic year;
  • GPA of at least 3.50 in the previous academic year
  • sailing on ships flying the Croatian flag after completing their education for at least as long as they received the scholarship, except when, due to the situation on the maritime labour market, it is not possible for everyone to perform such a service by boarding a ship.
Exceptionally, if there are no vacancies on the ships of Croatian shipowners, trained naval scholarship recipients may also board ships under a foreign flag.
