College Scholarships

For those athletes who enjoy their experience with Sarasota Crew, there are now more opportunities to row competitively in college than ever before. As an organization that excels in both producing champion rowers and high achieving young adults, college recruiters are often at our regattas talking with our coaches and families.


For our athletes, rowing can helps with the college admissions process and, in some cases, can even provide help with the high cost of higher education in the form of athletic scholarships. Many Crew athletes have gone on to row at the college level, some of them on scholarship. A partial list of destinations for Sarasota Crew rowers in the last few years includes Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Georgetown, Penn, Durham, Columbia, Brown, US Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, US Military Academy, Virginia, University of Washington, Boston College, Boston University, Vanderbilt, Duke and many others.


The Crew coaching staff is actively involved in this process and is committed to helping athletes and their parents find a good college fit.  For a more complete list (by Year, School & Rower) of where our Alumni have gone, see our Alumni lists.
