Scholarships 

Scholarships for Santa Barbara Youth Sailing Foundation programs are generously underwritten by the Santa Barbara Yacht Club Women’s Group (SBYCW).

It is our hope that any child within the community who has a desire to participate in the sport of sailing will have an opportunity to do so, regardless of whether or not they feel they can afford it. Full and partial Scholarship awards will be based on several factors including but not limited to funds available, number of requests received and needs of the applicant/individual/family.

If you would like to participate, please apply by printing and filling out the application below. Please submit the recommended documents and completed application to the address listed on the application.
