As a team, we are pleased to give back to our student-athletes. Not only have we developed some scholarships for our college-bound seniors, but many of our rowers go on to receive athletic scholarships or college signings for rowing at the institutions that they chose to attend.
The Joe Kelly Memorial Scholarship
The Joe Kelly Memorial Scholarship is handed out every year to a college-bound senior student-athlete on our team that not only shows prowess on and off the water as an athlete, but more importantly one that mentors his or her peers. A rower that is quick to help a former rower and coach, or even a parent. This scholarship was originally funded by a generous donation by Joe Kelly’s parents, and is now funded through fundraisers throughout the year. If you would like to donate money toward this scholarship fund please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
