Scholarships and Financial Support

It is the mission of NYSEF to provide opportunities for athletes of all ages to reach their potential in snow sports through professional guidance and financial support.

Help make your dreams reality.

Horst Weber Scholarship Fund


Horst Weber is a former NYSEF Program Director and Head Coach. Upon his retirement from NYSEF in 2000, many of Horst's friends, colleagues and former athletes joined together to establish a scholarship fund as an ongoing tribute to Horst's tireless dedication to NYSEF and to benefit worthy junior skiers.

The Horst Weber Scholarship is an endowed scholarship fund intended to provide financial support to one or more promising NYSEF junior alpine, freeride, nordic or snowboard athletes, male or female, who demonstrate a commitment to reaching their potential in snow sport competition. Funds from this scholarship may be used to defray training or competition expenses such as NYSEF program or enrollment fees, travel costs, race entry fees, equipment or  participation in NYSEF or USSA camps.

Dare to Dream Scholarship Fund

The Dare to Dream Fund began with the inaugural NYSEF New York City Fundraiser, held in May of 2011 at the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park. The Scholarship Fund is an unrestricted fund designed to support athletes who have demonstrated high levels of commitment and dedication to their respective sport, and to help them defray costs standing in the way of their dreams.
