About the Scholarship

The Lindsey Vonn Foundation provides future generations the tools they need to discover the grit within, pursue their passion, overcome obstacles, and reach their goals through scholarships, programs, and mentorship. A scholarship from the Foundation is a financial aid option to allow the next generation to pursue their passion in academic and enrichment activities to reach their goals.

Scholarships from the Foundation will support academic and enrichment activities to help youth reach a goal. In their applications, applicants should showcase their ability to overcome obstacles, discover grit, and pursue a passion. Scholarship funds can be applied to enrichment activities of any kind, including camps, prep-classes, clubs, etc., that help children engage in their passion. Applicants can apply for one of three tiers of scholarship amounts:

  • Tier 1: $0 to $999
  • Tier 2: $1,000 to $2,499
  • Tier 3: $2,500 to $5,000
