The application for this scholarship is very simple. Simply download this PDF application form, fill it out by yourself or with the help of a parent or guardian and email or mail it back to us.
On the form, you’ll type in your name, your age, and your birth date. Then, we want you to write a short essay (or explanation), in your own words, on the theme:
“Why would you like to attend sailing school and why do you think you should have a scholarship?”
We can’t tell you what exactly you should write, but it should be whatever you feel best describes how you’d like to be included in our program. Don’t worry, we aren’t looking for spelling or grammar but for who you are and why you deserve this free program. We want you to keep it short, no more than 250 words.
You can include it on the PDF you download below, or you can send it in another PDF document from Microsoft Word or Notebook or any other text-based format along with your application.
NOTE: We will notify you only if you win one of these scholarships.
