Financial Needs-Based Scholarship Program Information & Application


Team Breckenridge Sports Club Financial Need Scholarships are awarded to qualifying families to help make participation in snow sports more affordable.  Scholarships can be awarded up to 75% of program fees toward tuition (typical awards range from $500 to $800).  

Funding for scholarships comes from individual and corporate donations, as well as various team-based fund-raising events throughout the season.

General Guidelines and Considerations for Financial Need Scholarships

  • Recommended support need from Student Support Services (SSS), a third-party financial need assessment company
  • Members in good standing with TBK
  • Applicant Essay
  • Parent Statement of need

Team Breckenridge Sports Club (TBK) has teamed with Student Support Services (SSS) by NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools) to assess financial needs.  SSS works with over 2,000 schools, organizations, clubs, and camps to provide financial need assessments.  All documentation is submitted on their secure website.  The TBK Board does not have access to family financial information.  Based on the information you provide, SSS calculates an estimated amount that your family can contribute toward program expenses at TBK. TBK will use this information to help determine awards for athletes, along with other criteria.

Athletes that receive financial needs-based scholarships and their families are expected to be active participants in fundraising events for TBK, as a way of contributing to the scholarship fund.  Past participation in TBK fundraising efforts will be highly considered as part of the scholarship criteria.

An athlete essay or video will be required.  The essay/video should cover why it is important to the athlete to participate in their sport and with Team Breckenridge, how the athlete demonstrates leadership and exemplifies the TBK values of Respect, Commitment, Responsibility, Character, Integrity, Initiative, and Dedication.  Finally, a description of the athlete's goals and what their plan is to achieve them should be included.

A brief parent stat​ement explaining the need, their past commitment to the club, future commitment to the club, and a specific requested dollar amount is also required.

The deadline to apply for scholarships is August 30 for athletes over 12 years of age and October 15 for all other athletes.
