Friends of Greenwich Crew (FOGC) is committed to making the sport of rowing accessible to all student-athletes regardless of background or ability. 

Scholarship applications are reviewed by the FOGC Scholarship Committee at the start of each registration period. Scholarships are granted on an annual basis and cover the fall, winter, and spring rowing seasons. Awards will be granted on a sliding scale that range from 25% - 100% of registration fees only.
