Vitamin Sea Sail is a non-profit initiative in which has as a main goal to give youth between 18-25 years the opportunity to experience life at sea. There will be four scholarships available for the summer 2023. It is possible to apply for these scholarships when you have booked a voyage with a ship that will participate in the Tall Ships Races 2023.
PS! You do not need any sailing experience beforehand in order to be a relevant candidate for the scholarship, or to participate in the Tall Ships Races in general.

The Corona situation has led to changes within Vitamin Sea Sail, and as mentioned there will be four scholarships available that cover a part of a sailing voyage during this year's Tall Ships Race, instead of a full scholarship in which was the original agreement for 2020. This is done in order to give more young people the opportunity to go sailing.
The application form is already published, and you can find it HERE!
The Tall Ships Races is an annual event for sail training, in which was implemented for the first time in 1956.
The event is being administrated by Sail Training International (STI) who are based in Gosport, England. STI is registered as an ideal organization with members from all over the world.
One of the main goals of STI is to contribute to education and development of youth between 15-25 years, of all nationalities, cultures, religions, genders and social backgrounds, through sail training.
Flott mulighet, men hvorfor gjelder ikke stipendet dem som er 15-17 år?
Hei, og takk for spørsmål!
Grunnen til at ungdom mellom 15-17 år ikke kan søke på disse stipendene er at stipendiatene reiser på turen uten ledsager, og dermed reiser på eget ansvar. Vitamin Sea Sail ønsker ikke å være juridisk ansvarlig for ungdommene som reiser, og dermed kreves det at de som søker på stipendene må være myndige, altså minimum 18 år.
Om ungdom mellom 15-17 år likevel har lyst å delta på Tall Ships Races, samt søke om et delstipend, så finnes det mer info om dette på linken under:
Håper dette hjelper!
