“I am so grateful and honored by the generosity of the Memorial Fund. Without question, the journey through the ranks of figure skating is so difficult. I challenge myself to achieve my dreams and the Memorial Fund and its donors help make those dreams achievable.”


- HAVEN DENNEY


A tragedy shook the figure skating world on Feb. 15, 1961, when Sebena Flight 548, carrying the U.S. Team to the World Figure Skating Championships in Prague, Czechoslovakia,


crashed near Brussels, Belgium. All aboard were lost. From this loss arose the U.S. Figure Skating Memorial Fund. The mission of the Memorial Fund is to provide qualified U.S. Figure Skating members in need of financial aid with monetary assistance to pursue their goals both inside and outside the competitive arena. The fund is


committed to awarding skating and academic scholarships to those athletes who have demonstrated excellent


competitive results and/or academic achievements, and who have potential in national and international competitions.


“I feel honored to be among the skaters who receive funding to pursue their dreams. The Memorial Fund is special because it continues the legacy of the 1961 World Team. It has helped make my dreams a reality by providing the funds I need to pursue extra training with figure skating greats like Frank Carroll and Kathy Casey. I am forever grateful and honored by your donations.”


- ASHLEY CAIN HOW THE MEMORIAL FUND HELPS ATHLETES ON AND OFF THE ICE:


COMPETITIVE SKATERS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

CSAP awards are available to qualified ladies, men’s, pairs and ice dance competitors at the juvenile – senior levels who demonstrate financial need and meet the well-defined competitive requirements.


Applications are accepted beginning June 1 of each year. Awards are disbursed to skaters during the fall.


ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM


The Academic Scholarship Program (ASP) assists current and former skaters who are enrolled in an accredited college or university as an undergraduate or graduate student and who are actively involved in the sport of figure skating. The ASP provides financial assistance to help with such costs as tuition, fees, books and supplies.


Skaters receive funds based on financial need, cumulative grade point average and level of competitive achievement. Other criteria considered include volunteering at local clubs, judging or officiating, or competing as a member of a synchronized skating team.
