Women’s Sailing Foundation offers scholarship to teenage girls in honor of Marblehead’s Corl

The Women’s Sailing Foundation is offering the Sue Corl Youth Sailing Scholarship in 2023 to young women 14 to 19 years old who want to broaden their sailing experiences but need financial assistance in order to do so. 

The scholarship was established in 2015 in memory of Sue Corl of Marblehead, a board member and a tireless advocate for WSF programs. Opportunities for interested girls may include, but are not limited to, an advanced sailing program, a racing program, a tall ship or live-aboard experience or a marine or maritime-related program. 

The scholarship — up to $500 — will be awarded to one applicant who would be unable to attend the program of her choosing without financial assistance. The scholarship funds are applied to the tuition cost. WSF encourages all eligible young women to apply. Applications must be received by April 15. When there are multiple requests for a program, sailing-related programs take precedence. 

For more information and an online application, go to womensailing.org/sue-corl-youth-sailing-scholarship.  For questions specifically related to the scholarship, email SueCorlScholarship@womensailing.org. 

Donations to the fund may be made online to womensailing.org/get-involved/donate-now/ or by check made payable to the Women’s Sailing Foundation and mailed to the Women’s Sailing Foundation, P.O. Box 588, Marblehead, MA 01945. 

The Women’s Sailing Foundation is a 501(c)(3) educational organization. Its mission is to enhance the lives of women and girls through education and access to the sport of sailing.

The two main sponsors of the foundation are the National Women’s Sailing Association and AdventureSail.

WSF accomplishes its mission by providing NWSA members with educational programs and opportunities in sailing and networking. The AdventureSail program is a life-enhancing mentoring program for under-represented girls. For more information, visit womensailing.org.
