Tuition Grant Requirements
We encourage all members of the US Ski and Snowboard Teams (A - C Teams) to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to pursue your college education while you continue to train and compete. Tuition grants are available for all A, B, and C team athletes and to qualifying U.S. Ski Team alumni who are recommended and approved through USSA and the Westminster College START Center.
Current A, B, and C team athletes need to apply to and be accepted to Westminster College, according to the college’s general admission requirements.
U.S. Ski Team alumni who participated in the Westminster tuition grant program while they were active U.S. Ski Team members are eligible to continue their studies under the grant program.
Tuition grants are awarded by the following criteria:
Current team ranking (A → B → C → Former Westminster/U.S. Ski Team Athletes)
Current high school GPA or college GPA
Current high school or college class standings
Tuition grant availability per semester, based on when the application is submitted.
If an athlete is expelled or is eliminated from the U.S. Ski Team, the tuition credit will be retracted at the end of that particular semester.
What does the Tuition Grant Cover?
The Westminster Tuition Grant Program will cover the full cost of tuition related to their studies, for up to 16 credits per semester for undergraduate students. (For more information on graduate programs, please contact your USSA representative and/or Deb Vickery at firstname.lastname@example.org)

The application fee
Student fees (activity fee, technology fee, health and wellness fee, etc.)
Lab and/or workshop fees
Room and board, if desired
Books or materials required for classes
Travel costs if required as a part of a course (i.e. May term courses)
