Gary Painter Rowing Prize

The Gary Painter Rowing Prize is available to members of the Edinburgh University Boat Club who show ability and potential for national representation.

The Gary Painter Rowing Prize will be open to applicants who:

  • Are matriculated students and rowers for the University of Edinburgh;
  • Are members in good standing of the Boat Club (i.e. they do not have any outstanding debts to the Boat Club);
  • Demonstrate the ability and potential to compete at national or international level in the sport of rowing (this will be determined by the Head of Rowing at the University of Edinburgh);
  • Have personal or financial circumstances that otherwise might inhibit that potential to be realised.

The value of the bursary will be £500 per annum

The scholarship is very helpful as it will allow me to go on training camps abroad and go to Great Britain trials which are both essential to having success on the international stage.
