Program Fees & Scholarship Eligibility

Scholarship Eligibility & Application

Our course fees are set on a "sliding scale" based upon a family's Annual Household Income or the Adjusted Gross Income.  See below tables describing the fees and sliding-scale for each course.
 
The registration and lottery process for admitance to the Courageous Sailing Summer youth programs is “Need-Blind.” This means that admission, in no respect, is based on ability to pay. Scholarships are readily available for all who qualify. Extenuating circumstances are always taken into consideration should a family choose to share them with our staff. All financial and personal information is kept confidential.
 
Important
Payment for 2014 need not be made until after enrollment confirmations have been sent in April.

All information you need regarding applying for scholarships can be found here on this website or on the back of the enrollment form that was mailed to each registered student.
