For the 2017 season the Wessex and South East Coast Regional Committee are offering four scholarships to under 18’s within the region. These scholarships are for under 18’s whose circumstances can justify the necessity of such award in order to achieve their individual goals.

This year WSECR have agreed to offer four scholarships of £126 to subsidise cost of club membership (£100) and cover the cost of British Rowing Gold U18 Membership and racing license (£26).

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of individual need.

Example Candidates;

  • Athletic standard is not an essential criteria as the award aims to support those both new to the sport and experienced but struggling to cover costs.
  • Those who have benefitted from their experience of rowing in a broader way- for example building confidence, social skills and identity.
  • Those who are looking to advance in their rowing, where such scholarship would make a clear difference in the potential for these aims to be achieved.
