Scholarship Opportunity

Brian Russell Memorial Fund Scholarship

The Brian Russell Memorial Fund was founded in May of 2000 after the tragic passing of Brian Russell at age 16. As an Alyeska Ski Club racer Brian competed in both local and national alpine events. Brian was an outstanding athlete, an avid skier and alpine ski racer, and an excellent student. In his memory, the Alyeska Ski and Snowboard Club and Glacier Valley Ski Education Foundation established a scholarship fund in his name.

The mission of the Brian Russell Memorial Fund is to promote and inspire the love of junior ski racing and provide financial support to developing junior ski racers. The Fund is structured so that athletes age 15 and older are encouraged to be active in year-round training and racing, maintain 3.0 GPA’s or better, be positive role models and remain drug and alcohol free.

Over the years the Fund has awarded many scholarships to outstanding athlete / scholars. Recently the scholarship amount has grown to $2,000. If you have an athlete that meets the above requirements please encourage them to submit an application.

Donations to the Fund are accepted year around.
