Rosenblatt Undergraduate Scholarship

Mandell and Lester Rosenblatt founded M. Rosenblatt & Son, Inc. in 1947. Through the unending drive of its founders, the company grew to be one of the world's largest private naval architecture and marine engineering firms. The founders led the company in the design and development of all types of naval and commercial ships. The Rosenblatt's expertise extended from aircraft carriers and submarines to tankers, tugs and high performance craft. Many of the world's most innovative designs can be attributed to the company. SNAME remembers and celebrates the combined legacy of Mandell and Lester Rosenblatt through the scholarship dedicated in their names.

Herbert Undergraduate Scholarship

In 1963, Robert N, Herbert, Naval Architects opened for business. Bob Herbert started this venture with a clear vision of the type of work he wanted to do, and most importantly, how he wanted to do business. His keen sense for innovation, and his honest, straightforward manner helped build long term relationships with his clients. Herbert was also an innovative employer who realized the importance of providing employees with a stake in the company. The company was incorporated as Herbert Engineering Corp. in 1975, with all shares owned by employees who actively participate in the company's management. SNAME remembers and celebrates the legacy of Mr. Herbert through the scholarship dedicated in his name.
