Gus Dubus Scholarships

The Propeller Club provides financial assistance to the award-winning Student Port chapter at Georgia Southern University, and funds annual scholarships to GSU students in the Logistics and Intermodal Transportation program and to other college students from our area studying to obtain a degree and seek a career in the Maritime Industry.  


Four Annual Scholarships in the amount of $1000/- each are offered to deserving applicants who meet with the qualifying criteria as described in the application form.


Our scholarships are in honor and recognition of Gustave Robert Dubus, III ("Gus"), a maritime lawyer in Savannah for over twenty-five years, practicing as a partner in the firm of Chamlee, Dubus & Sipple.  Gus was a member and president of The Propeller Club of the Port of Savannah and spearheaded, along with others, the Propeller Club of the United States national convention in Savannah in the 1980's.  Gus was a graduate of Washington and Lee University and the University of Georgia Law School. Gus' law practice consisted of representation of shipowners and vessel underwriters in all types of maritime cases.  He was a member of The Maritime Law Association of the United States and the Southeastern Admiralty Law Institute.  Gus was well known and highly respected in the maritime community.
