has been named the 2014 recipient of the FEDNAV Rotational Scholarship.
Now in its fourth year, the FEDNAVScholarship recognizes exceptional students in Management or Finance and Economics who have demonstrated initiative and leadership through their extracurricular activities, community engagement, and work experience.
In addition to a cash award of $10,000, the scholarship includes a three-month paid rotational internship at FEDNAV headquarters in Montreal. While there, Bohulevych will have the opportunity to work closely with various departments in the company, including Operations, Chartering, Business Development, and Risk Management. When he returns to classes in the fall, Roman will complete an independent study with Professor Ajaz Hussain of the Department of Economics to complete a research project on new opportunities for trade development in the Great Lakes, which will be presented to FEDNAV’s senior management in May 2015.
While the cash award and recognition are very welcome, Bohulevych is most excited about the work component of the scholarship. “What’s more important is the invaluable experience that I will gain as a summer intern working for such a large international company,” he says. “Fednav has offices on four different continents and they are one of the best at what they do. Being a part of that competitive, international environment will be very exciting. I am also looking forward to sharpening up my French skills during the three months in Montreal.”
FEDNAV Limited, the largest international maritime bulk carrier in Canada, won the award for Montreal’s Top Employer earlier this year and has also been recognized by Mediacorp as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for 2014.
