Deree – The American College of Greece is proud to partner with two Nasdaq-listed shipping companies, Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp. and United Maritime Corporation. Through both companies’ generous donations, the first two scholarships exclusively directed to Deree Shipping Management undergraduate students will be awarded in the academic year 2023-2024. The scholarships are intended to provide support to academically distinguished undergraduate students, pursuing a BSc degree in Shipping Management, but may not have the adequate financial means.
The support is offered for the duration of their studies. You can find more information here.
Mr. Stamatis Tsantanis, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of both companies stated:
“We are excited to offer two four-year partial scholarships for the BSc program in Shipping Management at The American College of Greece. Both at Seanergy and United, we believe in the continuous development of the new generation of shipping professionals, and we invest accordingly. In this context, we take actions to support the educational and professional success of young individuals that are eager to become future leaders in the shipping industry.”
Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SHIP) and United Maritime Corporation (NASDAQ: USEA) are international drybulk shipping companies listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market in New York.

Both companies’ generous commitment aligns with ACG’s vision of serving dedicated students who strive for personal growth, contribute to their country and the world, and build upon a legacy of innovation and collaboration.
