Sultanate of Oman Bursary

The Sultanate of Oman Bursary Scheme is available to young people aged between 15 and 25 years who are financially disadvantaged, regardless of background, nationality, creed, physical ability or sailing experience. The Scheme helps to fund young people from around the world to benefit from the life-changing experience gained from participation in races and regattas organised by Sail Training International. A maximum of €500 is awarded to each selected trainee.

The Royal Navy of Oman has funded the Sultanate of Oman Bursary Scheme every year since 2011.

The Scheme gives financial support to disadvantaged and disabled young people from around the world to allow them to benefit from the sail training experience at a Sail Training International event or other approved activity.

The intent is to foster international friendship and support the development of young people. Several Australian and New Zealand Tall ships are accredited for these bursaries.
