NMCCSC Web 6Application & Selection

See scholarship application form in the sidebar. The Committee uses the following criteria, to be addressed by all applicants, to establish the rank-ordered applicant list. Applications must be submitted to the scholarship committee chair by December 1, and must be used during the club membership year in which they are awarded.

  • Why are you seeking a scholarship?
  • Do you own avalanche safety equipment?
  • Describe your back-country skiing experience.
  • Have you led, or do plan to lead ski trips for the club. How do you anticipate participating in the club in the future?

Scholarship Committee

A Scholarship Selection Committee consists of the Bus Trip, Day Trip and Hut Trip Chairpersons. Committee members may apply for scholarships, but must recuse themselves from the selection process. Duties of the committee include choosing a chairperson, advertising the scholarships, setting an application deadline, selectjing recipients, and (if the aggregate dollar amount of scholarships applied for exceeds the amount budgeted for scholarships) rank-order the applicants. The Committee gives preference to avalanche school applications.
