The Catalina Channel Swimming Federation proudly announced the establishment of the Dottie York Scholarship Fund.

Dottie York, a wonderful woman who was instrumental in founding the Catalina Channel Swimming Federation in 1979, left a legacy that continues to this day.

The Dottie York Scholarship is awarded to American swimmers who demonstrate both a dedication to completing a swim across the Catalina Channel and difficulty in meeting the financial requirements. Applications are now available at the Catalina Channel Swimming Federation website and are due 120 days in advance of your swim.

Considering this is the Fund’s inaugural year, swimmers will not be strictly held to this deadline. Swimmers with attempts in this coming June and July (already within 120-day window) are encouraged to explore the Dottie York Scholarship Fund and consider applying.
