ISA Scholarship Program

The ISA is proud to award academic surf scholarships to U18 junior surfers*.  The Individual Scholarship Program’s main objective is to provide financial support to junior surfers who demonstrate economic need, in order to facilitate growth in surfing while encouraging the importance of education. The money must be used to travel to surf contests, and/or upgrade their surfing equipment and to foster the junior surfer’s education.

The ISA Scholarship Recipients are inspirational individuals, who strive to succeed in both surfing and education.  These “ISA Ambassadors” are selected based on their dedication to represent their Nation as an exceptional student and surfer in their community.  The ISA Ambassadors characterize themselves by providing a positive influence on their peers as a committed youth in both the sport of surfing and school.
