Neil Ross Scholarship
The Neil Ross Scholarship was formed in recognition of the numerous contributions that Neil Ross has made to the Association of Marina Industries and to the marina industry overall. As one of the founders of AMI's Training Institute Neil helped set the standard in education in the worldwide marina industry. He facilitated the creation of the Certified Marina Manager (CMM) designation and helped advance professional marina management in the process. Neil Ross could be said to be “the father of the professional marina industry” and it’s a privilege to recognize his contributions to the industry in establishing this scholarship fund.
Annually AMI will select two marine trade associations (mta) for their contributions to the industry and provide each with a $1,000 award to be used towards AMI training and educational events. Each MTA will then select an individual who will receive this award to attend training.
