Far West Masters Scholarship Recipients

The Far West Masters Scholarship Program  started in 1992.  Over the past 23 years more than $800,000 has been distributed to Far West Ski Racing athletes.  All funds go directly to athletes, administrative activities are done on a volunteer basis, so there is no overhead.

A majority of sponsored athletes go on to college, many on ski and scholastic scholarships.  The US Ski Team currently has many scholarship alumni currently competing including Marco Sullivan, Stacey Cook, Tim Jitloff, Travis Ganong,Mark Engel, and Lila Lapanja.

In addition, the Jeff Wattenmaker  scholarship endowment allows us to award a $10,000 college scholarship yearly to one of our outstanding young athletes in the program. 

Other benefits of the program include:
An opportunity to attend the Masters pre season training camp at Copper Mtn.

It funds the concussion awareness program that includes purchasing and making available to all Far West junior athletes the IMPACT baseline cognitive test which helps assess head injuries and when it is safe for an athlete to return to sport.

Our young racers earn their scholarships based on a combination of (and in order of importance) citizenship, exemplary work ethic, academic scholarship, financial need, and ski racing potential. In turn, they must forerun one of the Masters races and speak at that day's awards ceremony.  It's always fun to see these hot juniors tear up our courses, and equally impressive to listen to them talk about their goals and desires.

This year we awarded scholarships to $27,000 to 40 athletes they are
