Our friends at The Women’s Sailing Foundation (WSF) are offering the Sue Corl Youth Sailing Scholarship in 2022 to young women 14-19 years old who want to broaden their sailing experiences and need financial assistance to do so. The scholarship was established in 2015 in memory of Sue Corl of Marblehead, MA, a board member and a tireless advocate for WSF programs. The young women identify the opportunity of their choosing. Opportunities may include, but are not limited to, an advanced sailing program, a racing program, a tall ship or live-aboard experience, and a marine or maritime-related program.

The scholarship up to $500 will be awarded to one applicant who would be unable to attend the program of her choosing without financial assistance. The scholarship funds are applied to the tuition cost. WSF encourages all eligible young women to apply between February 1 through April 10, 2022. Applications must be received by the April 10 deadline. When there are multiple requests, sailing-related programs take precedence. The online application can be found at womensailing.org/sue-corl-youth-sailing-scholarship/. Please direct any questions to SueCorlScholarship@womensailing.org.

Donations to the Fund may be made online at womensailing.org/get-involved/donate-now/ or by check made payable to the Women’s Sailing Foundation, and mailed to Women’s Sailing Foundation, P.O. Box 588, Marblehead, MA 01945.
