Women’s International Shipping and Trading Association (WISTA International) and Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (The Institute) are partnering to increase the professional competence and enhance educational opportunities for women in the maritime industry.


In a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has signed  in London, the two organizations will offer five scholarships annually over the next 10 years to individuals nominated by WISTA International. The scholarship will cover the Foundation Diploma program at The Institute.

These are dry cargo chartering, ship operations and management, ship sale and purchase, tanker chartering, liner trades, port agency, logistics and multimodal transport, port and terminal management, offshore support industry, shipping law, maritime insurance and shipping finance.


The scholarship program is available to all WISTA members worldwide. Individuals must be nominated by their National WISTA Association by June 23, 2017. The first scholarship cohort will begin their studies in September 2017.
