Far West Ski Association awards Athletic Scholarships to developing Alpine ski racers participating in programs within the Far West geographic region.

Special thanks to our sponsors, Whitefish Mountain Resort and Grouse Mountain Lodge in Montana, Schure Sports, Inc., the makers of Karbon brand ski clothing and Far West Racing Associaiton, we are able to fund scholarships ranging in value from $250 to $1,500.

Scholarships assist athletes who are committed to pursuing a competitive Alpine racing program. Scholarship funds may be used to offset training expenses and competition entrance fees, but may not be used for personal travel or equipment.

Far West Ski Foundation

The Far West Ski Foundation augments the Athletic Scholarship Program through funds raised by direct contributions. The Foundation makes its scholarship selections with an eye toward expectations of the long-term contributions the student-athlete may make to the skisports community and the larger community as well.

Scholarship Criteria

Scholarships are awarded according to a weighted set of criteria. The four criteria include:
  • Athletic performance in four Alpine Disciplines as recorded by USSA

  • Academic Achievement

  • Community Service

  • Financial Need

All applicants are ranked according to these criteria and reviewed by a set of judges with long experience as racing officials. The judges make their selections and the results merged to pick the student-athletes for the coming racing season.

Scholarship Eligibility Requirements

Any competitor who is currently a United States Ski Association (USSA) licensed U21, U19 or second year U16 (15 years old) athlete, competing in a USSA affiliated Alpine Ski Racing program is eligible to apply for a scholarship.

Applicants must reside in or compete with an Alpine Ski Racing Club or Team within the Far West geographic region that includes the states of Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington or Wyoming.

Athletes who have previously applied, but not awarded a scholarship, and previous scholarship recipients are all encouraged to apply.

Download 2017-2018 application due June 30. Scholarships awarded by September 30.
