Robin Travis Scholarship

Thomas Miller established the Robin Travis Scholarship programme in 1992 in memory of Robin Travis, a former Director of Thomas Miller who died suddenly and prematurely in 1991. He had a long association with the German Members of the transport clubs managed by Thomas Miller, correspondents and brokers. There have been thirteen scholars so far and it is intended that there will be an opportunity for another scholar to join the programme in London in 2013.

The scholarship provides a three month internship for a motivated individual working in Germany currently employed in the shipping, transport or insurance sector. The scholar will spend about 6 weeks in the Head Office of Thomas Miller in London and the remainder of the time in selected businesses tailored to the individual, such as lawyers, surveyors or insurance brokers.
