We believe everyone should have the opportunity to participate in a recreational sport. Scholarships at NEDS are available to individuals qualifying for financial assistance and will be awarded based on financial need to the extent of available scholarship funding. Scholarships for the upcoming ski season will be based wholly on financial need. Past application and/or past receipt of scholarship funding is not indicative of an award of a scholarship for the upcoming ski season. Please note, all scholarship applicants will be required to submit a current tax return as proof of income. In order to be considered for financial assistance, all forms must be completed in their entirety, as incomplete forms will not be considered. All completed scholarship forms will be reviewed by the NEDS Scholarship Committee for selection and approval. All information collected will be held in the strictest confidence.

Requirements and Policies of Scholarship Recipients:
Failure to comply with these requirements may result in ineligibility for future scholarships.
- Scholarship Agreement: Must be read and signed upon notification that a scholarship has been granted.
- Scholarships are to be utilized by the accepted recipient only. If the accepted scholarship recipient is unable to, or chooses not to, utilize the scholarship award, the recipient is required to immediately notify New England Disabled Sports (NEDS). Any unused portion of the scholarship award will be forfeited back to the program and can not be applied to future seasons.
- Cancellation Policy: We ask that all students who are unable to make a lesson to please notify NEDS of their cancellation, in advance of their lesson. Students who do not cancel in advance of their lesson, or “no show” for their lesson will forfeit their scholarship for that day. We recognize that sometimes cancellations are unavoidable but we ask that you please consider and respect the time, energy and effort our volunteer coaches expend to be at NEDS for each assigned lesson.
- Scholarship award recipients will be required to write a “Testimonial” and/or “Thank You” note which will be sent to those individuals who make the Scholarship Fund possible and, may or may not be used in future NEDS marketing materials.
