ABOUT SCHOLARSHIPS

We believe that everyone who wants to row should be able to row, regardless of background or economic circumstance. To serve this mission, the GPRF provides need-based youth rowing scholarships at our partner boathouses throughout the Northwest region for athletes in grades 6 through 12. Scholarship funds are awarded based on financial need AND the participant’s ability to meet attendance and participation expectations. Partial and full scholarships are available. Read on to learn about how it works!

WHAT WE OFFER

FEES

Based on your award level, we'll cover 25%, 50%, 75%, or 100% of registration fees for a youth rowing program.

Swim

If you're uncomfortable in the water or don't know how to swim, the GPRF will help you find lessons so you can pass your float test for rowing!

TRANSPORT

Need help getting to or from practice? We'll help you get there!

Uniform/Gear

The GPRF has a closet of new and gently used training gear available for scholarship award recipients, if you have a specific required uniform item we can help with that too.
