Career and Technical Certificate Opportunities for Dual Enrollment

If you are interested or have questions please see Mrs. Nehrig in Student Services. 



I'm writing to share a note from one of your graduates. I know that we usually share about our summer PALS program, but due to a sizable grant from the Miami Dolphins we are offering full scholarships to our 9 month Peace Ambassador Leadership Program for the 2021-2022 school year. Applications close on September 30th and we are only offering 50 scholarships. Students can participate virtually or in-person.

"I’m a graduate of the Peace Ambassador Leadership Program (PALP) and I’m writing in hopes of you sharing this opportunity with your high school students. I benefited so much from PALP that I’m now enrolled in a leadership program for college students. This year we have space for 45 students and spaces are filling up fast. My request is that you send this email to your high school students so they can have the experience I had, while earning service hours on a monthly basis. They receive 50 service hours throughout the school year, and we bridge the gap between classroom learning and life-skills. We even help with college prep. The letters of recommendation I received from NVEEE helped my college applications so much, which is another reason why I’m committed to helping other students benefit from this program." 

We have attached a copy of the flyer in PNG and PDF form for your easy reference and forwarding. You can read more about PALP at 

In case we haven’t convinced you enough, check out some of the benefits students receive from participting in PALP:

  • · Develop life-skills
  • · Build confidence and resilience
  • · Get college advising from a FIU Honors advisor
  • · Build your resume and college application

Our students pursue a degree in one of five majors offered through two Academic Departments: Marine Engineering and Marine Transportation. Students receive full tuition, room and board, and books at no cost.


Graduates of the United States Merchant Marine Academy earn a Bachelor of Science degree, a U.S. Coast Guard license, and a commission in the United States Armed Forces.
