For 2022, Andrew Simpson Foundation are launching their Performance Academy Sailing Scholarship, designed to provide pathway sailors subsidised additional training through the Performance Academy programmes.

What is this scholarship about?

In 2022, four sailors across the junior, youth and senior pathway will be selected to have subsidised access to The Andrew Simpson Foundation 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?

Interested sailors are to apply using the application form by December 20th, 2021.

Applicants will then be shortlisted by a panel of Performance Academy and Andrew Simpson Foundation senior staff members.

The successful sailors will then be selected from the short list by the ASF Trustees and announced in early January.

For more information on the scholarship by email: enquiries@ascperformanceacademy.org
