2024 Performance Academy Sailing Scholarship is NOW OPEN!

December 4, 2023

The Performance Academy Sailing Scholarship (PASS) is a unique opportunity for the Andrew Simpson Foundation (ASF) to provide pathway sailors subsidised additional training and support through the Performance Academy programmes 

How are the sailors selected?

Junior, youth and senior sailors can apply. 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. 

A full programme of training and support

Four sailors across the junior and youth pathway were selected earlier this year to have subsidised access to ASC Performance Academy group training, a mentoring programme and team kit. 

In 2023, we supported the sailors by providing subsidised access to world class training opportunities, they also received subsidised event support and they all had access to a dedicated mentoring scheme.  

Proud Sponsor

We are delighted to have benefitted from the continued support of A – Plan insurance Ltd

Applicants will then be shortlisted by a panel of experts in the field and successful candidates will be announced early in 2024.
