Applications are now being accepted for the Helen M. McLoraine Scholarship! The Pioneer Fund established a college scholarship program in 2010 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 a men’s, ladies, ice dance or pairs event.
This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship Management Services, a division of Scholarship America. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability or national origin. A total of $240,000 in scholarships will be awarded ranging from $4,000 to $8,000 per scholarship recipient, and scholarship awards will be announced in June – 2019.
Applications are currently open and the deadline to apply is Feb. 16, 2019.

The Graduating Seniors Program was developed by U.S. Figure Skating to recognize the achievements of those individuals graduating from high school who have made the commitment to continue their training in figure skating while pursuing their academic studies. The purpose of this program is to honor and credit those qualified graduates for their achievements during their high school years through the presentation of a certificate to the skater during a school function or recognition opportunity. To further applaud the achievements of the individuals awarded, U.S. Figure Skating will publish the names of the recipients on both the U.S. Figure Skating Graduating Seniors Program webpage, as well as in SKATING magazine.
