WoW Scholarship

Part of the WoW mission is to raise funds to provide scholarships for girls to ski race. In keeping with this mission an annual WoW Scholarship of $2000 has been given to a deserving girl since the 2016-2017 season. After much deliberation and research the scholarship committee worked with the Mount Mansfield Ski Club and the Mount Mansfield Winter Academy to determine how the scholarship would have the most impact upon an aspiring young racer. The following criteria are considered when choosing such a recipient:

• Financial need as established by the MMSC and/or MMWA
• Enrolled in the 7th or 8th grade either in public or private school
• Motivation to reach her highest potential as a student and athlete
• Exhibit positive social and emotional skills when relating to peers and adults


We are very pleased to report that each year’s recipient of the WoW Scholarship has met with success both academically and athletically. At the end of each year WoW has received glowing descriptions of each girl’s progress.  The girls have expressed through thank you notes their deep appreciation of this scholarship and the encouragement it has provided to help them pursue their dreams. They have also gone on to receive additional scholarships from other organizations to continue their participation in the Mount Mansfield Ski Club and Winter Academy.

Thanks to the generous donations of our members WoW has awarded the 2023-2024 scholarship of $2000 to a deserving seventh grade girl. She is a successful and diligent young lady who has been a very positive member of the MMA community since she was quite young.  She will be taking a big step forward this year by being a part of the boarding at school.
