Swimmers who are Smart

 

Smart swimmers show their intelligence through academic excellence and the use of common sense.


The SMART swim program recognizes academic excellence of those swimmers who achieve a cumulative high school grade point average of 3.75 or better (at the end of their 7th semester) and awards them with a monetary scholarship toward the expenses of their freshman year in college.


The 3.75 GPA standard qualifies them for nomination by their coach as Academic All-Americans as recognized by the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association (NISCA).


The amount of money awarded depends on the amount contributed to the scholarship fund by SMART Swim Programs, Swimmerman LLC and contributing donors. The amount per swimmer also depends on the number of years the swimmer participated in at least one season of SMART swim programs.


Current amounts are:

1 year - $100; 2 years - $200; 3 years - $500; 4 years - $1,000.


To apply for one of these scholarships, Smartswimmers should send a copy of their transcript and the accounting information necessary for us get the amount credited to you at the appropriate school.
