Organization of Black Maritime Graduates to Host Fund-Raising Gala

suny-maritime-collegeThe Organization of Black Maritime Graduates (OBMG) was founded in 1994, and has granted over 80 maritime scholarships since its inception. The nonprofit organization was formed by Captain Robert Cook and five other SUNY Maritime College graduates to help minority students at Maritime College fund their higher education.

The scholarships are awarded each year at a dinner held in February, in honor of Black History Month. Awardees are selected based on their academic merit and financial need. OBMG also provides these students with guidance and mentoring, both during college and after graduation.

OBMG will be hosting a fund-raising gala on October 30, in New York City. The event is being held at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, and promises to feature notable speakers and historic maritime exhibits. If you are interesting in attending the gala, applying for a OBMG scholarship or making a tax-deductible donation to the cause, please visit blackmaritimegrads.org.
