Steven Wallace Maritime Trust Scholarships

The hugely successful fundraising auction at our 2023 MLA Conference has enabled the Trust to provide scholarships to three aspirant maritime lawyers for post-graduate study. Two of the three awards are to junior female advocates who wish to specialise in this field at the bar. The other award is to a young man who is currently excelling academically while in full-time employment with Transnet as a trainee marine pilot. These awards reflect the MLA’s commitment to promoting transformation, and rewarding academic excellence. Mentors will be appointed to each student to support their academic progress and guide them in managing the simultaneous demands of work and study.

The Trust and the MLA express their gratitude to all those who contributed so generously to this scholarship fund, in the memory of our own Steven Wallace.
