The most famous, competitive, and renowned scholarships are naturally found at places where snowboarding and skiing is a way of life. Most skiing and snowboarding scholarships are at the college level under the rules of NCAA. You will have to fulfill certain eligibility criteria for these scholarships like a minimum GPA to qualify not only for scholarships but to land in a position on a team. You’ll also have to maintain your grades up to stay on the team, as all those awarded NCAA sports scholarships must maintain a strong academic record to participate in their college sports programs. If you are good at academics and the sports that you play then getting a scholarship is not a tough job.

Students often neglect and overlook small schools. But usually, competition for winter sports is very high at top schools. So it is good on your part not to wipe out or eliminate the option of small schools. For example, the College of New Jersey, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, DePauw University, and 342 other colleges offer up to $9,000 in scholarships for every year of ski and snowboard club. Plus, if you're in a leadership role, you may be eligible for an extra scholarship of up to $3,375 per year!
