Dear Members

Applications for the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers Scholarships Program are open.

For the fifth straight year Ancoria Insurance Public Ltd in cooperation with the Cyprus Shipping Chamber (CSC), the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS) and YoungShip Cyprus, will grant three full scholarships for the seven subjects required to undergo the Professional Qualifying Examinations (PQE) for Membership (MICS) to the ICS. 

The scholarships are available for Cyprus permanent residents between the ages of 20-35, who are fluent in the English language. To apply, candidates must submit two reference letters and a letter of application with their work history, academic achievements, distinctions/awards/qualifications, and a cover letter “Why do I need this scholarship?”

An independent selection committee composed of representatives from the CSC, the ICS, YoungShip Cyprus and Ancoria Insurance, will review and select six applicants based on their written applications. The six finalists will undergo an interview process, out of which the three successful recipients will be selected.
