Financial Aid for Rowing with South Eugene Rowing Club

Thanks to our generous club supporters, SERC has a Financial Aid Fund to assist families with the costs of crew. The number and value of scholarships provided varies from season to season depending upon the availability of funds. Any student who has participated in summer camp, joined us for a trial week, or is a current/past rower is eligible to apply.


  • SERC will set a specific minimum amount available for scholarships at the start of each budget year. 

  • Scholarships will be need based.

  • Scholarships will be granted for one season at a time – Fall or Spring. This allows for rowers to participate season by season and for changes in the financial status of parents/guardians.

  • SERC cannot guarantee availability of funds for any individual rower for future seasons.

  • Scholarships DO NOT include USRowing membership, fees that are billed outside of regular dues (including uniforms), Nationals, training camps, etc.

  • SERC sets a limit of a 10-50% scholarship maximum per athlete per season and assumes that each athlete and his/her family will provide the balance. SERC does not guarantee any particular scholarship per rower, but will instead work to provide partial funding to as many rowers as possible. Exceptions may be made to the 50% rule as circumstances and funds available warrant.

  • Financial aid funds will be released after the rower’s portion of dues has been paid or a payment plan has been established. Payment plans may be set up with SERC administration.

  • Scholarship recipients are expected to participate fully in all SERC activities, including practices and fundraising events. 

  • SERC will protect the confidentiality of all applicants. A committee from The George Pocock Rowing Foundation will review applicants and will forward final decisions to the SERC Board. SERC parents, Board Members, and Coaches will not be part of the decision making process.


Please complete THIS APPLICATION FORM.  Once notified, families will have two days to accept or decline the scholarship offer.
