Scholarships

The Colorado League is committed to making programs accessible regardless of financial situation. We promote the mission that every teen and school in our region deserves the opportunity to build connections and empower youth by participating in high school mountain biking. Whether a coach, team, or individual rider, these scholarships are provided to offset expenses directly related to participation in the Colorado League activities.

The generosity of sponsors and individuals provides funds for these scholarships. We try to reach as many people as possible. Thank you for understanding that full funding requests are rare.

Alpine Bank is dedicated to supporting travel to State Championships and higher education. Alpine established scholarships earmarked for these activities.

Team Evergreen is the oldest and largest cycling club in Colorado. They produce many events including the Hundo. They host numerous other events and rides. Their mission is to build the cycling community by expanding rider experiences, hosting compelling events, and channeling thoughtful philanthropic impact. A non-profit, they have donated nearly $3 million to local charitable and advocacy organizations.

Yeti, founded in 1985 on lunch rides, has become a heavyweight in the racing world and a pillar in the local cycling community. In 2021, Yeti substantially increased their contribution to the scholarship fund in memory of Sam Schneider an alum of the Mountain Vista High School team, Yeti employee, and Fort Lewis College student.

Mountain Island Excavating is committed to offering the opportunity for teams and coaches to obtain First Aid training. Mountain Island and others are funding this scholarship.
