The Snowbasin Sports Education Foundation (SSEF) mission states that we strive to create an environment and pathways for the youth of Utah to be able to reach their individual potential as athletes, students, and contributing members of the greater community through winter sports participation.  SSEF understands the financial burdens associated with its programs and strives to provide need-based financial assistance as available.  Families who feel they need financial assistance are encouraged to apply for SSEF financial assistance as well for other support or scholarships potentially available from outside sources.

Complete applications for financial aid (including requisite supporting materials) should be submitted to, no later than August 31, 2022.  Timely applications are required.  Late applications will only be considered under exceptional circumstances.  Because awards are evaluated annually, a renewal application must be filed each year.

Financial aid may be provided in a variety of forms, including waiver of team fees or expenses, equipment, and/or ski pass.
