It is part of the SBSEF mission to foster and enable the participation of athletes from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. SBSEF understands the financial burdens associated with its programs and strives to provide need-based financial assistance as available. SBSEF also encourages athletes to explore scholarships potentially available from outside sources as well as SBSEF Grants.
Snowbird Sports Education Foundation is offering need-based financial assistance to athletes who meet the following requirements:
1. Athlete must be a current team member (2023-2024) in good standing with tuition and account.
2. Athlete must be 12 years of age or older, participating in a multi-day training program.
3. Athlete must comply with all SBSEF Team rules and policies, including standards of conduct.
4. In addition to financial need, the athlete’s character, sportsmanship, work ethic, and respect for team members, coaches, and staff will be substantially considered.
Applications, supporting financial information, and financial aid awards provided are kept in strict confidence. Only the Executive Director and members of the Grant Committee of the SBSEF Board of Directors will be aware that you have applied for and received aid. Financial aid awards will be determined by the SBSEF Grant Committee and the Executive Director.
SBSEF financial aid decisions are guided primarily by financial need, character, goals, and SBSEF available resources (which may vary from year to year), as well as merit in the case of the Championship Grant. SBSEF does not consider race, color, national or ethnic origin, gender, religion, or sexual orientation. Applying for or receiving financial aid will not affect one’s chances for admission to SBSEF programs.
Financial aid recipients are held to the same standards and ethics as all other SBSEF members. SBSEF expects the same level of commitment and participation from all of its members, regardless of their financial situation. Setting a great example for others in regard to sportsmanship, eagerness to help, attendance, and general commitment to the SBSEF community may be taken into consideration in determining awards.
Financial aid may be provided in a variety of forms, including waiver of team fees or expenses, equipment, and/or ski pass.
All grants will be based on need and will be reviewed by the Grant Committee.
The Grant Application for the 2023-24 season will open August 1, 2023, and close August 15, 2023
All grants will be awarded no later than August 25, 2023.
WHAT ATHLETES SAY
KIND WORDS FROM OUR GRACIOUS ATHLETES
"The SBSEF Scholarship grant allows me the ability to excel in the best ways that I can. Without funding from SSEF, I would not be continuing my dream of being on the World Cup Circuit. Receiving this grant reminds me that Snowbird believes in me and what I have to offer which makes my dream become more real."
"Thank you so much for the Championship grant. It really helped cover the cost of Mammoth. I had a great experience working with new coaches and creating new friendships with athletes. Competing at the Regional level was super fun and really opened my eyes to what next-level skiing has to offer."
"Thank you so much for the generous financial grant. It makes a huge difference for us in making ski racing possible. This is where we find so much joy and a place to excel. As the results come in, so do the costs! Thank you for enabling us to meet this challenge."
