Scott Hamilton Skaters Education Fund

Formerly the Helen M. McLoraine Scholarship, The Scott Hamilton Skaters Education Fund was established to assist eligible current and former amateur and professional ice skaters who dedicated their lives to skating and now wish to pursue a college education.

Scholarships are offered each year for full-time undergraduate study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice. Eligible individuals are skaters that have competed at least once in a U.S. Figure Skating qualifying competition at the novice level or higher in either men’s, ladies, ice dance or pairs.

This scholarship program is administered through U.S. Figure Skating and scholarships are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability or national origin. A total of $240,000 will be awarded, ranging from $4,000 to $8,000 per recipient. Scholarship recipients will be announced in June of 2020.

Applications open today and the deadline to apply is Feb. 14, 2020. For more information and to apply, click HERE.
