Needs-based Scholarships

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

Needs-based scholarships are awarded and administered independently by Women in Action. BSSEF provides scholarship support of up to 25% of program costs. Women in Action sometimes provide additional support.

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.

Dedicated scholarship funding comes from the generous support of our sponsors.

  • Complete the application form on the WIA website.
  • 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.

Achievement-based Scholarships

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.

BSSEF License Plates

Support BSSEF’s programs by requesting a special BSSEF license plate when you register your vehicle in Montana. All proceeds received by BSSEF go toward scholarship.


You can support our scholarship programs directly by making a donation and designating your tax-deductible contribution.
