Los Gatos Rowing Club Scholarship Policy
Los Gatos Rowing Club encourages participation in the sport of rowing. The club recognizes that the cost of participation may be a barrier for some juniors who wish to participate. Therefore, the club makes limited scholarship aid available for junior members.
FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for Los Gatos Rowing Club for the upcoming 2019-2020 rowing season. Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by August 31, 2019. Applicants can apply online by clicking the FACTS link at

Who is eligible to apply?
Junior members whose families have demonstrable financial need are eligible to apply for scholarship aid.
How funds are made available
The club will make scholarship funds available up to a limit of the 4% of the budgeted income for the Junior Program Regular Rowing Season. Scholarships will be accounted for as both income and expense to the Junior Programs. However, since scholarships result in a loss of revenue to the club as a whole, all members share in the cost of providing scholarships. At the discretion of the Finance Committee, a portion of the available funds may be set aside and earmarked to provide assistance for travel expenses to invitational/select regattas. If a scholarship recipient drops out of the program, the unused scholarship funds may be allocated to other applicants at the Finance Committee’s discretion or set aside and earmarked to provide assistance for travel expenses to invitational/select regattas. Unused funds will be rolled forward to the next Junior Program.
If the rower decides to drop out of the program within 7 days of being notified of the amount of his/her scholarship award, then the 45% program fee already paid LESS $300 will be refunded by check. If a rower who has accepted a scholarship award drops out after the 21st day of the program, then the Junior Registration Policy applies.
