Jim Grew says the cost of attending college or university is only going up. So, in a positive spin on current events, Jim is putting a little inflation into the Barbara Bolding Scholarship.
As of 2022, the USA Water Ski & Wake Sports Foundation Barbara Bolding Scholarship will be increased from $5000 a year to $10,000 a year. The Barbara Bolding/Jim Grew Scholarship was established in 2001 and is given to a qualifying female who attends a four-year accredited college and skis primarily in AWSA, NCWSA, or USA-AWSWS tournaments.
"It was time to make this happen," says Jim.
Jim Grew is a massive supporter of the foundation and of all things water skiing! Jim was a 2013 Inductee into the USA Water Ski & Wake Sports Foundation Hall of Fame.
Kristen Baldwin of Winter Garden, Florida was the 2021 recipient of the Barbara Bolding/Jim Grew Scholarship. Kristen is a sophomore at Arizona State University majoring in Film and Media Production.
The USA Water Ski & Wake Sports Foundation scholarships are awarded each year to water skiers who show leadership abilities and demonstrate that involvement in the sport has helped them grow both personally and academically.
