The T2 Foundation is now accepting applications for Junior Team grants in 2017-18. Last season, the T2 Foundation supported 35 athletes through their Junior Team program. Those athletes saw success on many levels. They also gave support to the entire team of athletes that was selected to go to Junior World Championships in Are, Sweden.

This year, they will be accepting applications from athletes from birth years 1997-2003. These grants are designed to help the country’s best young talent continue within the development pipeline, and will be awarded based on need, merit, school standing and contributions to community.

The goal of the Junior Team program is to support America’s best young skiers in the quest to become the world’s best athletes. Grants will be designated for travel and training purposes and, whenever possible, applied directly to those needs through affiliated programs. Our grants range from $1,500 to $10,000 depending on need and age.

The T2 Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports alpine, cross-country and freestyle skiers.  Our annual grant program helps offset the costs associated with training and competing at an elite level.  The T2 community gives back to the youth and ski community by connecting athletes with youth around the country through organized events and programs.
