Row It Forward Scholarship

The mission of Naiades Oncology Rowing is to serve the physical and emotional needs of cancer survivors through a shared rowing experience that fosters wellness, courage, determination and healing. The cost of maintaining this rowing program is considerable and is funded in significant part by fees paid by each participant.

Our mission is frustrated whenever these fees present a barrier for those most in need of experiencing the best that Naiades has to offer. For this reason, the Board of Directors has established the Row It Forward Financial Support Scholarship Program, supported by a dedicated fund and on-going donations, for those who need financial assistance to participate in Naiades programs. For more information, check the program description above. To apply, complete the Application and submit it for consideration.


Donations are always welcomed and can be made directly through PayPal.
