We encourage all Far West Skiing Alpine athletes 13-20 years old to apply. 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 October 12th 2020. Award winners will be announced in late 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”.
Even with the uncertainties due to the pandemic with what will happen in the upcoming ski season, we plan to go forward with this program. We will be flexible with regards to funding and athlete requirements based on the expected updates of schedules and programs.
As always, it is an honor to receive applications from such a great group of athletes.
Thank you in advance for applying.
Eddie Mozen, Chairman Masters Scholarship Fund
