OSCA Scholarships

In order to assist all clubs in Oregon Swimming, OSCA has created a rotating educational scholarship fund that all clubs can utilize for the benefit of their coaches. OSCA approved 11 yearly scholarships 10-1-2016.

Eligibility Statement

  • Each fall, at the annual Oregon Swim Coaches Association meeting, the  eligible clubs shall be present to receive their $350.00 scholarship. If a club listed is not present, then that team forfeits their scholarship and moves to the end of the list.
  • Scholarships are available for one year from the date of selection. Receipts are to be turned into the OSCA Treasurer.
  • Scholarship funds may only be used to defray the costs of educational activities {e.g. expenses related to attend clinics} or educational materials(e.g. Books or videos). Scholarship funds may not be used for equipment ( kick boards, stopwatches, Vasa Trainers).
  • Scholarship Funds may not be used for any expenses related to entertainment.
  • The Clubs are listed below with their tentative year of their scholarship monies. The order of listing is that which they were drawn when OSCA changed the awarding of scholarships format (2011). Plus any forfeitures resulting from teams being absent.
  •  Funds must be used by the following OSCA meeting or the club will forfeit their use
  • *Year may change**
  • OSCA reserves the right to approve the use of all grants.
