    A principal goal of the BSSC Financial Assistance Program is to provide access to the integrated Marine Science and Sailing programs to participants who otherwise are  unable to afford the programs. BSSC reviews Financial Assistance requests on a case by case basis and reserves the right to award Financial Assistance based on its sole discretion. Depending upon available funds and space, BSSC will attempt to ensure that all students who desire to participate in the integrated Marine Science and Sailing programs are able to do so, regardless of financial circumstances.
