Support the next generation of mariners

The Propeller Club has long supported future merchant mariners through Student Port chapters at maritime academies and other schools. Attendance at the annual convention enables maritime students to become involved in the larger Club network, but even with reduced registration fees, the costs of travel and lodging can be challenging for students.

Your contributions help us provide additional funding to support student attendance and participation at the convention.  Please click below to make a voluntary contribution to assist these future maritime colleagues.
