Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club Scholarships

The underlying objective of the Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club is to provide an opportunity for all community youth to develop their potential as skiers and snowboarders. The costs involved in skiing and snowboarding  and traveling at the regional and national levels can be burdensome, and the JHSC Scholarship Program was established to help mitigate the limiting nature of these costs.
As only a limited amount of scholarship funds are available, all athletes must pay a portion of their expenses. Scholarships partially offset program and travel-related expenses.
 
It is our intention that recipients of scholarship funds will, at some point, make a contribution of time or money back to the JHSC. In doing this, they will ensure that the scholarship program from which they benefited will continue to have the means to support athletes in the future.
 
To manage the 100+ applications received and to help families plan for the season, there will be one scholarship review.  The application deadline is October 3rd, with travel requests for the season being submitted at this time. Applicants will be notified by October 14th at which time a payment plan may be established.  Tuition is due in full by December 31.

The Scholarship Committee will consider the following equally important criteria:

• Need
• Academic Performance: 3.0 cumulative GPA
• Commitment to the JHSC Program
• Citizenship, Leadership, and Sportsmanship
• Ability/desire to contribute back to the JHSC program
 
Thanks to the generous support of our local community scholarships are available through our general Scholarship Fund, the Wes Barron Scholarship Fund, the Nordic Summer Commitment Scholarship, the Johnny Curtis Scholarship Fund, the Nordic Challenge Scholarship Fund, the Brent Newton Ski Foundation and the Betty Woolsey Olympian Endowment. During the 2015-2016 winter season over $50,000 was granted to local kids. In addition, the Karen Oatey Scholarship Endowment Fund was established in 2015 with the goal of funding scholarships in the future.
 
Scholarships and other financial aid are also available through outside organizations such as USSA-IMD and NAASF. Please contact your coach or the Program Director for more information.
