Since I had someone ask me about this recently, I thought I would put this out on the forum. Is the Student Incentive Program (SIP) from the Maritime Administration which gives approximately $4000 annual payments to Cadets pursuing their licenses at the State Maritime Colleges for enrollment in the MMR (Merchant Marine Reserve) still functional? How and when does the Cadet enroll in this program? What are the stipulations and benefits associated with this? Does enrollment in the MMR affect the in or out of state tuition rates charged by the state Maritime College (the college in this question was NY Maritime). Anyone with any knowldge of this one- feel free to post!
