Support Maritime College


For many Fort Schuyler students and families, the economic devastation of COVID-19 means lost wages, and ultimately the postponement or loss of their Maritime education.  When families have to choose between basic needs such as food, housing and healthcare, things like tuition, Sea Term, and books quickly become unattainable luxuries.

In light of these uncertain times, the College has established the One Hand Student Relief Fund to aid students who experience financial hardship. The purpose of this fund is to provide a financial lifeline to students needing help with tuition, room, board, Summer Sea Term or other costs and fees.  All gifts will be managed by the independent SUNY Maritime Foundation, and awarded through the College’s financial aid programs.

Now is the time that we need every graduate and friend of Maritime College to extend that 'One Hand' of support to our students. Please donate today.
