Island Sailing Club Scholarship
Due to the Pandemic, the 2020 Scholarship winners did not get to take advantage of the Island Sailing Club scholarship, so their scholarships were rolled over to 2021. Unfortunately both ladies declined for 2021 due to other commitments and adventures. In January, the scholarship opportunity was opened up to applicants with a due date of February 20, 2021. We appreciate our volunteers and are excited to be able to extend this opportunity to our volunteer members who have a documented record of volunteering with OWSA, and also a passion for sailing. We are grateful to Island Sailing Club for their partnership in extending this opportunity to OWSA members!
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 $2600.00!! Each year up to two OWSA members who are outstanding volunteers are awarded the scholarship, and share a club membership. Each scholarship recipient receives a 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. We will not award the scholarship to an existing Island Sailing Club member.
