Life Is Better When You Surf - Scholarship Program

We are so excited to announce our partnership with GSI for the Life Is Better When You Surf - Scholarship Program.

Life Is Better When You Surf® Scholarship Program South Africa Applications Open December 15, 2018

If you know a worthy candidate, read on below to see how submit an application.

The 2018 Life Is Better When You Surf® Scholarship Program, supported by Ocean & Trails and Global Surf Industries is open December 15, 2018 – February 17, 2019 for submissions from kids aged 12-15 years old in South Africa.

Ocean & Trails and Global Surf Industries (GSI) are looking to award 2 students in South Africa with 2 new surfboards and R10,000 towards their education, to empower young surfers and encourage their academic learning.

GSI created the Scholarship to promote the positive values around surfing and education and to give back to the surfing community. The Scholarship is focused on kids who exemplify that Life Is Better When You Surf® and show active enthusiasm for their education, rather than on surfing ability or academic achievement.

In 2017 30 kids across USA, Australia and New Zealand received the Life Is Better When You Surf® Scholarship. Since receiving their Scholarships the 2017 recipients have been able to purchase computers, enrol in tuition, pay school fees, participate in interstate sports competitions, attend school camps and a language immersion school.

As we launch the 2018/19 round of “Life is better when you surf” Scholarships it gives me a lot of pleasure to know that the program worked so well last year that we are expanding it to a wider number of countries, allowing more kids to take part. The feedback we got from last year’s families was over whelming, the gratitude of the recipients was humbling. I especially loved learning about the level of involvement and understanding of selflessness many of these young kids have taken on in their young lives.” – Mark Kelly, Global Surf Industries CEO.

 

Life Is Better When You Surf® Scholarship applications are open for citizens of South Africa from December 15, 2018 – February 17, 2019.
