Performance Academy Sailing Scholarships

Sailing Scholarship Opportunities

The Performance Academy Sailing Scholarship (PASS) is an opportunity for the Andrew Simpson Foundation (ASF) to provide pathway sailors subsidised additional training and support through the Performance Academy programmes.

What is this scholarship about?

In 2023, four sailors across the junior, youth and senior pathway have been selected to have subsidised access to our Performance Academy group training, a mentoring programme and team kit.

These sailors will be selected based on their need for additional support and their alignment to the ASF’s values (Inclusivity, Enjoyment, Community, Development, Inspiring & Partnerships). The full value of the scholarship will be up to £2,000 per person depending on the training and opportunities chosen.

As part of the scholarship, sailors will be asked to engage with Performance Academy social media posts and write two blog posts about their experience through the scholarship and the impact of the support offered.

How do I apply?

Applications are now closed for 2023.

Applicants are shortlisted by a panel of experts in the field.
