Ahoy! Set your sails for college scholarships with this list of awards available to sailors. Although sailing isn’t an official NCAA sport, there are still athletic scholarships available if you participate on a sailboat racing team. It’s important to be aware that the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) doesn’t allow for college and university sailing competitors to receive scholarships or financial aid based on sailing ability. So, if you plan to compete at the collegiate level, you’ll need to look into college scholarships based on other qualities, like academic achievement, financial need, volunteer service, and other characteristics. You may also qualify for this list of athletic scholarships with your participation in sailing. Start your search here and discover free money for college waiting for you.
