Fisheries program offers loans
More than $700,000 in scholarship loans are available for students interested in fisheries, seafood processing, food technology or other related fields. The funds come from the A.W. ``Winn'' Brindle Memorial Scholarship Loan Program.
Recipients have up to 15 years to pay back the loans and are eligible for up to 50 percent forgiveness upon graduation if they return to Alaska and are employed by the fisheries industry.
The program was established in 1986 in memory of A.W. Brindle, president of Wards Cove Packing Co. It is funded by private donations and contributions from fisheries businesses.
