Global Surf Industries Launches Life Is Better When You Surf® Scholarship Program
Global Surf Industries is launching the Life Is Better When You Surf® Scholarship Program
to promote the positive values around surfing and education.
The Life Is Better When You Surf® Scholarship Program will be awarding 30 kids, aged 10-
14 years old from across the United States of America, Australia and New Zealand, $1,000
(to be used for educational purposes) and two surfboards to each scholarship recipient.
The idea behind the scholarship is to give back to the surfing community, cultivate the
positive values of surfing and encourage academic involvement. The scholarships will be
awarded to kids who exemplify that Life Is Better When You Surf®, rather than focusing on
Mark Kelly, CEO and GSI Founder, says he wishes he started surfing earlier (he started
when he was 30!!) so he wants to give kids that chance. “Education in and out of the water is
so important that we want to encourage kids to progress in their surfing and at school.”
Applications are open for the USA citizens from September 18, 2017 – October 14, 2017
and successful applicants will be notified October 30, 2017. Applications for Australia and
New Zealand citizens open late 2017.
