The Far West Masters Scholarship Program has been raising funds for deserving
Far West junior skiers since 1992.
All money raised comes from Far West Masters racers and supporting sponsors and donors.
All administrative activities involved in the fund-raising and review of athlete scholarship applications are done
on a volunteer basis by members of the Far West Masters, which allows us to distribute the funds with
no overhead to Far West Junior Athletes.
We would like to thank everyone who has supported this program, particularly the
sponsors and donors who generously contribute to
support the raffles and other fundraising efforts. And congratulations to all of our
Our program initially raised money simply by direct contributions from Masters racers.
However, over the years the program has expanded to include more fundraisers,
including such events as:
- A season-long raffle with prizes ranging from dinners, gift certificates, ski wax and accessories to skis, poles and bindings
- A dual race including Masters racers and junior scholarship winners
Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of financial need, ski racing potential
and exemplary work ethic. Recipients of the award must forerun one of our 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.
The Masters also fund a 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.
