The Swivel Sisters Scholarship target recipient is a Gulf or Franklin County student (or any student who has competed in previous Bayou Bash tournaments) interested in studying a career related to water. The scholarship assists with financial costs of traditional college education or nontraditional post-secondary education for students pursuing a degree and/or certificate in water-related professions such as Environmental Science, Marine Biology, Marine Mechanics, and/or a USCG Captain’s License. Additional areas of study will be considered provided the applicant provides an accepted explanation along with a personal statement.
Recipients of the scholarship receive an initial award of $500 presented at the Bayou Bash. Subsequent awards of up to $500 are presented each semester for four years as long as all scholarship requirements continue to be met and maintained.
