Applying for Scholarships

The Fall Scholarship Program 

Deadline for the 2020-21 season application is Sept 30, 2020

The Sugarloaf Ski Club (SSC) accepts financial assistance applications from young snowboarders and skiers from Franklin & Somerset Counties for winter programs. 

The Sugarloaf Ski Club hopes to foster both recreational and competitive snow sport activities. While some children will take part in competitions, these funds are meant to encourage children to develop a healthy outdoor interest in a lifelong sport which plays a significant role in both work and play in our region.

The scholarship grants are partial, and are intended to help those children who would not be able to participate in a program without financial assistance.

Eligible programs include:

  • Minicuffer and Bubblecuffer programs

  • RSU#58 and Stratton Punch Pass Lessons

  • CVA Weekend Program

  • Carrabassett Valley Academy
