Scholarships

Opportunities do exist for Junior Program participants in need of some financial assistance.  All requests will be kept in strict confidence.  Two possible avenues to obtain financial assistance are:
  • The Southwestern Junior Foundation - A 501(c)(3) with the goal of extending sailing and angler experiences to the youth of San Diego County who are in need of financial assistance.
  • The Southwestern Yacht Club Junior Advisory Committee maintains some funding for scholarships.  Inquiries should be sent to the SWYC Junior Program Director along with three items:
    • A letter from the applicant stating why they are seeking a scholarship and wish to participate in the Program.
    • A letter of good citizenship from a teacher, counselor, coach, or someone of similar standing who can speak to the student's character.
    • A copy of the family's front page of their most recent tax return, showing the annual household/family income.
