This year the Shelley Glover Foundation is pleased to offer a $1000 ski racing scholarship to an exceptional Midwest student ski-racing athlete. The award will be determined by the SGF Board of Directors and presented at the Shelley Glover Memorial Ski Race on January 15, 2016.
The 2016 Shelley Glover Memorial Ski Race will took place at Marquette Mountain in Marquette, Michigan, January 15 – 17, 2016.
Each January, the annual USSA Shelley Glover Memorial Ski Race is hosted at Marquette Mountain, located in Marquette, Michigan. During the three-day event ski racers in the Under-8 and Under-14 divisions compete in slalom, kombi and giant slalom, and racers in the Under-16 division compete in slalom, downhill, and giant slalom. Once again organizers anticipate it to be one of the best attended races of the year in the Central Division/Region 2 as it is now also part of a qualifying series.
Beginning in 2006, the Shelley Glover Foundation has awarded annual scholarships at the Shelley Glover Memorial Ski Race to exceptional Midwest student ski-racing athletes who display qualities Shelley is remembered for. The athletes are recommended by their coaches and are required to submit applications demonstrating exceptional academic, team, and volunteer work.
Scholarships are made possible thanks to the support of our donors and the personal support of Rich and Carmella Glover. We thank all applicants, skiers, coaches and families who continue to make this race a great success. Please forward the scholarship application to any skier who you think may be interested and qualified. Thank you – we look forward to seeing you in January!
