The International Surfing Association (ISA), the World Governing Authority for Surfing, is now accepting applications for the ISA Individual Scholarship Program.
The ISA aims to award more than forty scholarships to junior surfers around the world.
The Scholarship Program is open to all junior surfers, ages 18 and under.
Applicants must prove financial need, be enrolled in school with good standing, and be an inspirational role model to the surfing community.
The ISA Individual Scholarship Program’s main objective is to provide financial support in order to facilitate an experience in surfing while encouraging the importance of education.
The money must be used to travel to surf contests, buy new surfing equipment, or to foster the junior surfer’s education.
The program offers added incentive for national surfing federations to send teams to ISA events, furthering the reach of surfing, as scholarship recipients use the experience to become better surfers, potential national champions and even possibly, world champions - all while continuing with their education.
The ISA is the first and only surfing association to provide global support specifically dedicated to developing surf skills and education.
The ISA Scholarship program has continuously exceeded its expectations due to the generous support from Billabong, the Quiksilver Foundation, Reef Redemption and Global Surf Industries (GSI).
