CSL Scholarship Program


CSL Scholarship Program 


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. 

 His  death was what sparked youth in our league to start the Kids Kick Cancer program to raise funds for Camp Kemo.  

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.
