Michael Weiss Foundation Offers Scholarships to Young Skaters
(2/3/04) — Three-time U.S. champion Michael Weiss is pleased to announce the formation of The Michael Weiss Foundation, a nonprofit organization created to address the issue of the high cost of figure skating. The foundation will offer skating scholarships funded by Weiss himself.
In its initial endeavor, The Michael Weiss Foundation will provide Olympic-eligible skaters facing financial hardships the opportunity to be awarded with one of three levels of financial support. Funding provided by the foundation will cover costs associated with training and competing at the Olympic-eligible level such as coaching, choreography, costumes and music.
"I knew when I was an up-and-coming skater; being recognized for my accomplishments and encouraged through financial support inspired me as a young skater to work harder and increased my determination to suceed," Weiss said. "It has been a dream of mine to inspire and support young skaters, and this is a way that I can help the future of figure skating."
Applicants must be an Olympic-eligible skater for the U.S. and a current member of U.S. Figure Skating; applications will be accepted from singles skaters of the intermediate, novice and junior levels and must be submitted by someone 18 years or older. If you would like further information about applying for the scholarship, go to www.michaelweiss.org. The application deadline if Feb. 23 at 5 p.m. Eastern time.
