USSA Tuition Grant Program

Westminster College, in partnership with the United States Ski and Snowboard Association, is pleased to support the Westminster College/USSA Tuition Grant program. We recognize that achieving academic success can play an important role for world-class athletes, such as yourself. To help you fulfill your educational aspirations while you continue to train and compete, Westminster College has become theOfficial Partner of Higher Education to the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Teams. In this capacity, Westminster offers current national team athletes (A - C Teams) and qualifying U.S. Ski Team alumni the opportunity to apply for the Westminster College/USSA Grant program, which could potentially cover your total tuition costs!

Westminster College is located in Salt Lake City, only 30 minutes from Park City and their world-class resorts and training facilities. As Utah's only private, comprehensive liberal arts school, Westminster College prepares its students for success through a strong foundation of liberal arts education combined with cutting-edge professional programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Westminster College is nationally ranked:

  • US News and World Report consistently ranks Westminster College in the top tier of colleges and universities in the West, and as a 'best value.'
  • The Princeton Review's “Best 378 Colleges” (2014 edition) ranks Westminster as a top college.
  • The Princeton Review’s 2013 “Guide to 322 Green Colleges” includes Westminster for its sustainability efforts.

All current A, B and C national team members are eligible to apply for the Westminster College/USSA Tuition Grant program; however, you must meet Westminster's standards for admission. For more information on the tuition grant requirements, click here. U.S. Ski Team alumni are also eligible to participate in the tuition grant program provided that they began their education at Westminster before they retired from the U.S. Ski Team.

More than 140 USSA student athletes have taken advantage of this tuition grant program, which is only available at Westminster College. Grants will be awarded to athletes based on criteria including their team ranking, grade point average (GPA), high school or college class standings and availability of grant tuition credits.

Westminster College's academic calendar is based on semesters, so we invite you to apply for the May, summer, fall, and spring semesters immediately. Since there are a limited number of tuition credits available, we recommend applying for this program soon.

To apply to Westminster College, please complete the Westminster College/USSA undergraduate or graduate application along with the tuition grant application (see links at left).
