The scholarship aims to support two young, talented New Zealand sailors to attend their class youth world championship regattas. The $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 the potential 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. Past recipients include Jo Aleh, Josh Junior and in 2016 Francesco Kayrouz and Oscar Gunn.

Applications close June 8, 2017
