Our trek is complete, we reached the summit,

Ultimately, we’d love to have people

and our efforts so that we can continue to help female disabled athletes in the future.
We are currently accepting applicants for this season, which is a Paralympic season.

Scholarship Announcement

Disabilities Without Boundaries still has scholarship(s) for a non U.S. athlete available!!

Scholarships are for a female skier or skiers with physical disabilities to be part of the National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) Alpine Racing Team. The NSCD is located in Winter Park, Colorado USA and has one of the best disabled alpine training programs in the world. Whether you’re just getting into racing or have already excelled, it’s a great place to train! You will train alongside some of the best athletes from the U.S. and other countries. Most years, the NSCD Alpine Racing Team has more than 5 full time athletes from various countries that are on their National teams and between 5 and 10 full time athletes from the U.S. Disabled Ski Team.

We awarded scholarships to 3 American athletes last season and depending on need and interest there will be at least one scholarship available for racer from a country outside the U.S. This scholarship can be used to attend races or training with the NSCD and/or partially toward equipment needs.

The recipient will be chosen based on
• Long and short term goals of ski racing
• Commitment to the sport
• Financial need

In order to apply for this scholarship please submit your biography or resume along with a description of how this scholarship would help you, why you think you would be a good recipient and your upcoming ski goals.
