Boulder Junior Cycling Financial Support Program
BJC has a financial support program for athletes needing help paying program fees, equipment, and/or travel costs. Support for program fees is limited to demonstrated financial need. Support for travel is available for both need-based and merit-based situations. We welcome all applications.
Finances should never be a reason a family can’t join our team! BJC has a scholarship fund set aside for this purpose, and we are honored to provide nearly $20,000 in financial scholarships and equipment every year.
While some BJC programs sell out very quickly, we always hold spots open for those kids who might be a scholarship candidate. You won’t lose your spot on the team! We look forward to all inquiries. Applications are welcome anytime, but we prefer to receive them at least a month in advance of the program start date if possible. Please contact Executive Director Pete Webber (email).
The money comes from private foundations, individual donations, and fundraising.
Program Fee Support: You may apply for a scholarship to help with program fees. (Scroll down for application.) The amount of financial support provided is based on a sliding scale considering the size of the family and income.
Equipment Support: Please let us know if you need financial help with equipment. We have loaner bikes available as well as clothing and other gear.
Travel Support: Support is available for athletes needing help paying travel costs for development opportunities and events both nationally and internationally. (Scroll down for application.)
Payment Installments: As an alternate to financial support, you may request to pay program fees in several installments instead of a lump sum. Requests should be sent to the BJC Executive Director via email.
Deadlines: Applications are welcome anytime, but we prefer to receive them about a month before the program start date.
