MASC Scholars – Victoria

University of Victoria MASC Scholarships

The Maritime Awards Society encourages its supporters and friends to donate directly to the established scholarship funds that exist at the following universities: Memorial University of Newfoundland, Dalhousie University, the University of Calgary, and the University of Victoria.

University of Victoria: The Commander Peter Chance MASC Fellowship ($10,000) is awarded to a student pursuing graduate studies at the MSc or PhD level in an area pertinent to Canada’s maritime interests. Priority will be given to studies on ocean-related topics within such fields as history, economics, sociology, policy, engineering, and science.

  • Gifts can be made to the University of Victoria fund by contacting the University of Victoria Development Office at or calling 877-721-7624. Please identify the “Commander Peter Chance MASC Endowment” as the recipient of your contribution. The University of Victoria will issue a tax receipt to you.
