Lindsey Vonn Foundation Announces New Scholarship Program for 2018

Scholarships will support enrichment activities to help youth to pursue their passion

Vail, Colo., February 2018 – Lindsey Vonn and the Lindsey Vonn Foundation announced today the launch of the new Lindsey Vonn Foundation Scholarship Program for 2018. The updated scholarship program allows girls and boys ages 11 – 18 to apply for scholarships to support their youth enrichment goals.

Scholarships from the Foundation will support enrichment activities to help youth reach their goals. In their applications, applicants should showcase their ability to overcome obstacles, discover grit, and pursue a passion, all of which are Lindsey’s core values for the foundation. Scholarship funds can be applied to enrichment activities of any kind, including camps, prep-classes, clubs, etc., that help children engage in their passion.

Applicants can apply for one of three tiers of scholarship amounts:

  • Tier 1: $100 to $500
  • Tier 2: $500 to $1000
  • Tier 3: $1000 to $5000

“The expansion of our scholarship program marks such a remarkable opportunity for the foundation to impact a new generation of inspiring young people,” said Lindsey Vonn. “Providing financial options that allow a new generation to pursue their passion is a dream I’ve had since I began competing. Giving young people the tools to discover their grit, pursue their dreams and overcome obstacles is an incredible honor.”

Scholarships will be awarded twice each year, in the Spring and Fall, and winners must participate in an enrichment activity within six months of receipt of the scholarship. In order to apply for a scholarship, applicants must follow the application guidelines once they select a tier dollar amount. Applicants can re-apply once a year, but only receive the scholarship three times total from the age of 11 to 18. All applicants must fill out the online application on the Foundation’s website.
