Our Scholarship Program

The Treasure Island Sailing Center (TISC) is committed to providing affordable sailing experiences and scholarships to youth and adaptive participants. TISC never turns away a child and has no limit to the number of scholarships we award. In 2017, TISC provided over 2,000 scholarships to Youth and Adaptive sailors. Over 80% of our youth sailors attended on full scholarship. TISC has scholarships available for both youth groups and individuals.

The Application Process

Please complete your scholarship application before you register for our programs. There is a $25 dollar annual application fee for Scholarships. All supporting documents must be uploaded as part of the application (please see list of supporting documentation options below). Once you’ve completed the application, you’ll receive an email letting you know whether you have been approved, and when you register for spring or summer camp the scholarship will automatically be applied.
Please email manager@tisailing.org if you require any assistance with this process.
