Funding Support               Funding Support Gallery

The MEF aims to identify and support relevant activities and projects each year, within an annual budget as determined by the Trustees, that will be undertaken by recognised organisations which are committed to enhancing maritime education, training and skills in the UK.

This may include:
  • Maritime charitable bodies;
  • Maritime education and training establishments;
  • Commercial or other maritime organisations that are seeking joint funding in addition to their own monies to ‘kick-start’ a project or activities that will benefit UK seafarers or the UK shipping industry.

The project or activity should address one or more of the following: –

  • Enhance the knowledge of UK seafarers;
  • Enrich the training opportunities available to UK seafarers;
  • Develop and improve the quality of UK Merchant Navy training;
  • Promote the safety of UK seafarers;
  • Identify, encourage and provide education to potential future UK merchant seafarers;
  • Improve the ship environment on vessels that include UK seafarers and officer cadets in terms of culture, gender equality, behaviours etc.
Applications for sector specific funding should be submitted by 31st March and 30th September each year for consideration by Trustees at the subsequent May and November meetings.
