Island Sailing Club Scholarship
We appreciate our many outstanding OWSA volunteers! We are excited to be able to extend an ISC Scholarship to our volunteer members who have been a member for at least two years, have a documented record of volunteering with OWSA, and a passion for sailing. We are grateful to Island Sailing Club for their partnership in extending this opportunity to OWSA members!
The scholarship application for 2022 is located at the bottom of this page. Applications are due January 1, 2022.
The Island Sailing Club Scholarship is a one-year membership to Island Sailing Club (ISC) provided by ISC and OWSA. This is a value of over $3,238.00!! Each year up to two OWSA members who are outstanding volunteers are awarded the scholarship, which includes the one-year membership in addition to the ASA 101 Basic Sailing Class through ISC. Members have access to 22' ISC boats for the year. In addition, the ISC Scholarship winners receive discounts on additional classes and membership at ISC. The Island Sailing Club scholarship gives OWSA members the opportunity to build sailing skills and confidence as a skipper. ISC members experience the decision-making process of planning outings, gathering crew, and choosing activities and/or destinations. Current Island Sailing Club members are not eligible for this scholarship.
- We recommend that the OWSA members complete their course together; course dates will become available March, 2022
- Registration for course dates must be completed by April 2022 to ensure enrollment
- Membership begins when the first recipient completes their course (if the course is not completed together)
- Scholarship recipients will abide by all Island Sailing Club guidelines and policies
- Scholarship recipients will use the boats for personal use only (no sailing lessons, chartering, etc. involving any payment or remuneration for the use of the boat)
