Jeff Wagner Memorial Scholarship

About the Scholarship:

At an executive board meeting in 2011, a discussion was held of ways that the Snow Snakes, as a club, might be able to give something back to the community.   From this discussion, the idea to establish the Jeff Wagner Memorial Scholarship emerged.

Jeff Wagner was an active, enthusiastic member of our club. He passed away, while doing what he loved most, on the ski slopes at Jiminy Peak on December 18, 2010. Jeff was a friend and skiing buddy to several members of the club. He was a wonderful, giving man who truly loved to ski. In memory of Jeff, the Central Connecticut Snow Snakes are proud to offer annual scholarships in his name to deserving high school seniors, college or graduate students who are pursuing post-secondary or graduate education.

Who is eligible to apply?

Applicant must be a current Central Connecticut Snow Snakes member (as part of an individual or family membership) for two full seasons, the current and previous seasons, pursuing post-secondary education. If the applicant is part of a family membership, the family membership must be one that existed last season and this season.

Applicants from previous years may apply again.

Awards take into account many factors including financial need, academic achievement, extracurricular activities, community service and character.

SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION DEADLINE IS MAY 15, 2017.

The Jeff Wagner Memorial Scholarship committee will meet in late May to review the applications and determine those candidates who will be awarded scholarships. The winners will be invited to attend the June end-of-the-season party at which the awards will be presented.

Members who are interested in making a contribution to the scholarship fund can do so by adding the amount that you would like to donate to your membership dues for the season. There will be a space on the membership renewal form which allows you to fill in the amount that you would like to donate. Although the Snow Snakes are a non-profit organization, we are not a charitable organization as defined by the IRS. As such, contributions to the scholarship fund will not be tax deductible. Nonetheless, every little bit helps! The club itself will make a significant contribution to the scholarship fund, with the final amount of the award depending upon contributions received.
