Thank you for your interest in the Far West Masters Scholarship Program. We encourage all Far West Skiing Alpine athletes 14-20 years old to apply. We will occasionally fund exceptional athletes who are 13 years old. In the past we have also made awards to athletes who have been turned down in previous years and to athletes who have previously won a scholarship. Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of (and in order of importance) exemplary work ethic, academic scholarship, citizenship, financial need, and race results.
Applications are due September 15th 2016. Awards are made by early November. Funds are then placed into racers’ accounts from which they may draw upon during the season for racing expenses. In return for funding, the Masters ask that recipients forerun one of their races and speak at an awards ceremony. The experience has proven to be quite fun as it allows a junior athlete to show off their stuff and to thank the Masters in person for their support. Your participation by speaking and selling raffle tickets at our awards parties is an important contribution to our fund raising efforts and it helps to teach about “giving back”. We are here to help, so please consider applying to this program. As always, it is an honor to receive applications from such a great group of athletes. Thank you in advance for applying.
