The Women’s Sailing Foundation offers the Sue Corl Youth Sailing Scholarship for an enhanced sailing experience or program for a teenaged girl.

In 2015, the board of directors of the Women’s Sailing Foundation established the Sue Corl Youth Scholarship in Sue Corl’s memory. The Scholarship will be awarded for a program or event identified by the Women’s Sailing Foundation Board of Directors as being appropriate for this scholarship. It is not an annual scholarship.

Enhanced Sailing Experience or program for a Teenage Girl
Elizabeth (Sue) Corl, of Marblehead, MA, a member of the Board of Directors of the Women’s Sailing Foundation (WSF), was a tireless advocate for WSF programs. Having raised two daughters and having been involved with many volunteer organizations supporting girls, Sue was an organizer of the first Boston AdventureSail® program which took place in Boston Harbor at Courageous Sailing Center in 1997. Sue was also the co-chair of the inaugural Women’s Sailing Conference in Marblehead in 2001. Sue died in 2007 but she will always be remembered for her desire to introduce the sport of sailing to young girls. In 2015, the Board established a scholarship in Sue’s memory, the Sue Corl Youth Sailing Scholarship (SCYSS).
This special scholarship is offered annually to underserved girls between the ages of 14 and 19.
The opportunities to which the scholarship may be applied include, but are not limited to, enrollment in:
• An advanced sailing program
• A racing program
• A tall ship or live-aboard experience

When there are multiple requests, sailing-related programs take precedence.
