Glenn Spartz Scholarship | Boating BC Association


The Glenn Spartz Scholarship offers financial aid to students pursuing their Marine Mechanical Technician Apprenticeship (MMT) offered at BCIT’s Marine Campus on Annacis Island or the Motorcycle + Marine Technician Foundation Program at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo. The scholarship supports the ongoing need for qualified mechanical technicians in the recreational marine industry in BC, and is a collaborative initiative led by Boating BC with contributing partners from the marine propulsion sector including: Mercury Marine, Volvo Penta, Yamaha, Honda Marine, BRP/Evinrude, and Suzuki Marine.

The Glenn Spartz Scholarship is named in honour of a former Boating BC board member who was instrumental in establishing the MMT program. For additional details, you can read the full article here.
