Support the Future of Our Athletes

We provide scholarships that remove economic obstacles associated with competitive snow sports.  Through donations, grants, and sponsorships, The Northstar Team Foundation will continue to increase funding so every athlete has the opportunity to reach their potential in sport and in life.


Our goal for 2021/2022 is to provide tuition assistance to more than 30 athletes.


Performance Grant Spring 2022

This scholarship is designed to reward the hard work, dedication, commitment, and achievement of Northstar Teams athletes and to help offset the costs of year round training and tuition. Applications will be open from March 30th - May 1st.  


Funds for scholarships are raised from targeted fundraising initiatives, donor-directed funds. NTF makes it a priority to raise funds for, and give out as many scholarships as possible in a given year.


Performance Grant will be awarded as follows:

Athletes will have tuition covered to one Northstar Team summer camp and should be planning to return to Northstar Teams next season.


Athletes will have Team tuition covered for next season.

 The Andy McDowell Foundation continues the legacy of the organization’s namesake by fostering passion for the outdoors through access to snow sports for Tahoe-area youth. Any kid who is enthusiastic about time spent on the mountain should have the chance to get on the hill, regardless of their financial circumstances. Our mission is to open doors to snow sports for as many kids as possible – exactly how Andy would want it.
