University of Washington Rowing Stewards


Give to Rowing

The University of Washington Rowing Stewards were established under Hiram Conibear in 1916 to assist the University’s rowing program. Conibear’s overriding concerns were twofold: raising money to cover his expanding program and building an outside support group of alumni to protect it. Little could he have known at the time how crucial this was.

Our commitment to championship level teams and an exceptional student-athlete experience depends on you, the Washington rowing community, as it has since the first day the white blades hit the water. Help us continue the tradition by making your gift today!
