  • Sailor(s) must write in the designated form 250 words or less to the Scholarship Committee expressing their need and desire for a scholarship, their level of sailing, what they expect from participating in the Clagett/Oakcliff, and what they will give back to the event;
  • Monies are given to sailors on a first-come, first-serve basis based on availability, in addition to being based on the 250 words or less form of their desire and financial need.
