Scholarships for The Clagett / Oakcliff Match Race

Please note: All applications are treated in the strictest confidence.

Whom may apply

Financial aid may be available to sailors with disabilities wishing to participate in the Clagett/Oakcliff Match Race but who cannot afford the cost. Both full and partial financial awards are made. Up to $500 per person but not more than $1000 per boat.

The purpose of scholarship monies awarded through the Clagett/Oakcliff Match Race event is to assist sailors with disabilities who express the desire to develop and improve their racing skills.

Scholarships are limited, based on financial need, and are awarded using the following guidelines:

·         Monies are reimbursable for travel and housing only;

·         Sailor(s) must participate in the clinic and racing;

·         Sailor(s) must write in the designated form field below 250 words or less to the Scholarship Committee expressing their need and desire for a scholarship, their level of sailing, what they expect from participating in the Clagett/Oakcliff Match Race, and what they will give back to the event;

·         Monies are given to sailors on a first-come, first-serve basis in addition to being based on the 250 words or less form field of their desire and financial need.


Applications must be submitted as soon as possible, no later than June 15. Requests will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee and awards will be made prior to the late fee registration deadline. This will enable those who do not qualify for scholarship monies to make other arrangements to attend the Clagett/Oakcliff Match Race before late fee registration begins.
