Connecticut's Mystic Seaport announced that more than $50,000 will be available for scholarships for the museum's youth sail training programs in 2012.

Scholarships can be applied to the fees for the Joseph Conrad Summer Sailing Camp, youth Community Sailing programs and the teen overnight programs on the schooner Brilliant.

The scholarships are needs-based and can cover as much as half of the cost of the program.

The deadline for applications is May 1, although scholarships will continue to be awarded on a rolling basis if funds are available. Click here for information about the application process or call 860-572-5322.

The scholarships are the result of support from the William and Eileen Ames Fund, the Todd Wilkins Scholarship Fund, the George Gordon Breed Memorial Fund and numerous private donors.
