Best in Class

BW LPG India proudly showcases two cadet scholars who were recognized by the Indian Maritime University (IMU) with prestigious awards. These scholars are excellent trailblazers for women in shipping.

Samriddhi Nabiyal: Best Senior Cadet Award

Cadet Samriddhi Nabiyal, a final-year BSc Nautical Science cadet, received the Best Senior Cadet Award during the Farewell Ceremony for graduating cadets at the IMU Kochi Campus, held in May 2024. This award, based on votes from both teachers and students, reflects Samriddhi’s academic performance, active participation in college events, and involvement in sports meets, and recognizes her hard work and commitment.

Ann Sandra Merin: Best Cadet of the Year 2023-2024

Cadet Ann Sandra Merin was honored with the Best Cadet of the Year 2023-2024 (Female) award. The award was presented by Dr. B V R Rao, Deputy Registrar at IMU Kochi Campus in May 2024. Ann’s commendable achievements in her academic tenure were recognized with a trophy, a medal, a certificate, and a cheque for Rs 10,000, sponsored by MSC Crewing Services Pvt Ltd

Dia Mirza Ferdousi: Top Female Scorer IMU CET Exams 2023

Dia Mirza Ferdousi is currently in her second year at the IMU Kolkata campus and is pursuing a B.Tech in Marine Engineering. She has been honored as the top female scorer in the 2023 IMU entrance exams. She received the award from Synergy Marine Group‘s Managing Director, Maneesh Pradhan. 

Promoting Gender Diversity At Sea
The shipping industry has a disproportionate number of men, and it is important that we encourage more women to join the business. One way we are doing so is by offering what is possibly India’s first holistic support structure for aspiring female cadets – a bond-free scholarship covering all tuition fees for her entire academic tenure, and guaranteed placement on ships with Synergy Ship Management. Cadets can then look forward to a supportive work environment where Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging are emphasized on shore and sea. 

Recipients of BW LPG India’s full scholarship, Samriddhi and Ann could focus on their academic pursuits and career in shipping without worrying about finances. Upon graduation, both can look forward to embarking on a career out at sea. We are confident that Cadet Samriddhi and Cadet Ann will find their sea legs quickly, and excel in their chosen profession at sea. Fair winds and following seas, Cadets!
