About the Scholarship

Make a Gift

The John Connolly Memorial Sailing Team Scholarship was established in August of 2014 in memory of John by his family and friends. John Connolly ’71 was a leader on campus and an active member of the University of Maryland Sailing Team. He spent much of his life teaching advanced sailing courses around the world and fostered a love of sailing in many of those who learned from him. This Scholarship will support students who are active on the University of Maryland Sailing Team and demonstrate academic merit and financial need.

* There is not a sailing performance or sailing ability criteria to receive the scholarship, nor is there a sailing performance or sailing ability criteria to be a member of the UMD Sailing Club.
