2019 will be the 22nd season that the Columbia Swim League has provided deserving swimmers with college scholarships.
Last year, the individual amount awarded was increased from $1,000 to $2,000! Eight students were awarded scholarships in 2018!
Each year rising college freshmen and high school seniors are eligible, which provides applicants with an even greater opportunity to win a scholarship.
The number of scholarships awarded each year is based on the number of qualified applicants we receive.
Announcing the Cole Sawyer Scholarship
In 2016, the Columbia Swim League added an additional scholarship in memory of Cole Sawyer. In 2005, Cole passed away as a result of cancer.
The perfect applicant for this scholarship is a student who is passionate about swimming, their studies, and most importantly is involved in service work that benefits children with health issues.
