Masterfit University, the snowsports industry's centers for boot fit training, has been certified as a non-degree education provider by the Vermont Student Assistance Corp. (VSAC).

Vermont residents are now eligible to apply for financial grants to attend Masterfit University fall 2012 programs anywhere in the U.S. including the September 27-28 sessions at Mt. Snow, VT (full schedule and locations below).

“This is an outstanding opportunity for Vermont ski and snowboard shop employees who want to advance their bootfitting skills and Vermonters who are interested in making bootfitting a career,” said Masterfit CEO Steve Cohen.

The maximum award amount per term is determined annually by VSAC based on funding availability and applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funding is available.

“We encourage all Vermonters to explore their eligibility for VSAC funding and complete an application as soon as possible,” said Cohen.

To apply, Vermonters first need to create a myVSAC account if they don't already have one. Account numbers are generally provided in 5-7 days. Prospective grantees will then need to complete an online grant application.
