Scholarship application deadline

Attention junior athletes, parents, and friends there-of! The deadline for submitting applications 
for 2014 scholarships awards from the Far West Masters Scholarship Program is this week! 
Applications are due by 5pm Sunday Sep 15.

We encourage all Far West Skiing Alpine athletes 14-20 years old to apply! We will occasionally 
fund exceptional athletes who are 13 years old. We consider ALL eligible applications - first-time 
applicants, past scholarship winners, and applicants who were not awarded scholarships in previous 
years are all given equal consideration by the review board. Scholarships are awarded based on a 
combination of (and in order of importance) exemplary work ethic, academic scholarship, 
citizenship, financial need, and race results.

Athlete awards will be announced in November and funds placed in racers' accounts from which they 
may draw on 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. This experience has proven 
to valuable and fun for the both athletes and the masters racers and sponsors who support this 
program with their donations.

Questions? Contact program chairman Eddie Mozen (contact details are on the application form, see 
links below).
