St John's Rotary Scholarship

Historically, the St John’s Rotary Trust supported one New Zealand youth sailor to attend CORK (Canadian Olympic Regatta, Kingston) each year. 

From 2014 onwards the scholarship aims to support two young, talented New Zealand sailors to attend their class Youth World Championship Regattas. The NZ$1000 scholarship subsidises the cost of attending the international event, making it more affordable for the recipients to compete.  

The scholarship is aimed towards young sailors who have a possibility of making the NZL Sailing Foundation Youth Team in the following years, allowing them to gain experience at an international level.

Since 1996, many New Zealand sailors have benefited from the exposure of intensive international competition provided by the St John's Rotary Scholarship.
