Scholarship applications for the upcoming season must be submitted to Women in Action by October 25th.

BSSEF provides scholarship support of up to 25% of program costs. Dedicated scholarship funding comes from the generous support of our sponsors and 100% of the proceeds from specialty BSSEF license plates issued by the State of Montana.

Needs-based scholarships are awarded and administered independently by Women in Action.

Women in Action is a local non-profit working to serve the community of Big Sky, Montana. The purpose of Women in Action is to provide access and support to programs that improve the well-being of children and families in our under-served rural Big Sky community.

Women in Action sometimes provide support in addition to that provided by BSSEF. Here’s how to apply:

  • Complete the application form on the WIA website by November 1st.
  • WIA will inform you whether, and to what extent, you have been awarded scholarship support for your participation in a BSSEF program after November 8th.
  • You will receive a discount code in the amount of your scholarship award to use at checkout. If you’ve already purchased a program, you’ll receive a refund in the amount of your award.


On a highly selective basis, BSSEF has the capacity to provide some support for athletes who are invited to participate in certain national or international competitions (e.g. Whistler Cup). Please contact the Program Director or a member of the Board of Directors for additional information.
