“Our most heartfelt thanks that the Leeuwin has provided a chance for our grandson to learn and experience a once in a life time opportunity that we can only hope will open a new door for his future. It will be up to us and him to reap the greatest benefits from the Leeuwin’s graciousness. I will wipe a small tear from my eye and say again, thank you. Boy I cannot wait to see his face when he reads this news.”

In January 2019, the STS Leeuwin II will return to Albany for the first time in almost a decade.
The City of Albany have generously provided part sponsorship for two young people from the City of Albany for a voyage arriving into, or departing from, Albany Port.
Each successful participant will need to fund $250 towards the total cost of their voyage experience, plus the cost of their transport to/from Fremantle.
This Woodside Scholarship is aimed at young people aged 14-25, who reside in WA and are interested in a career in the marine environment or the maritime industry.
The RMD Tankers sponsorship is available to a deserving young person from the Rockingham area who wishes to make a positive change in their life. Transport is not included in the opportunity and will be covered by the recipient.
