Financial Assistance Available!

Utah Crew strives to create an environment in which anyone who wants to row, can row. State and locally funded Youth Athletic Grant Scholarships may be available to athletes who qualify for free or reduced lunch programs or Medicaid. When scholarship funding through state or local grants is not available, Utah Crew will continue to evaluate all scholarship requests by local area rowers demonstrating economic need.

In addition, we work with athletes and their families to ensure all rowers are able to participate, regardless of the above eligibility requirements.
