The Canadian Masters Windsurfing Association (CMWA) is offering a bursary to a Canadian Youth who is 18 years old and younger prior to participating in the competitive windsurfing event. 

 
This bursary provides financial assistance to a Canadian Youth windsurfer to help him/her offset the cost of registration, travel, equipment leasing or coaching expenses necessary to attend a national or international windsurfing event. One $500 bursary per year is available.
 
To qualify for funding, the applicant must meet the following criteria:
· Be a Canadian citizen.
· Fill out and submit the CMWA application 30 days before attending a national or international event, including costs to be offset.
· Be competing in RS:X, Bic Techno or Kona events.
· Provide results from event for the CMWA newsletter and website
along with a summary of their experience.
· Submit proof of payment and outline of all related costs 14 days after
the event in order to receive approved funding.
 
NOTE:
In cases where the applicant is unable to provide funding to attend the event, 50% of the bursary may be awarded in advance at the discretion of the Board of Directors.
