Applications now open for The Paul Cuthbertson Foundation scholarship
The Paul Cuthbertson Foundation is pleased to announce applications for the Third Annual Live for Those Who Cannot scholarship are now being accepted.
The Live for Those Who Cannot scholarship is awarded periodically to mountain youth with a passion for life and dedication to achieving excellence in their pursuits.
The purpose of The Paul Cuthbertson Foundation is to invest in the next generation of young women and men by providing merit-based scholarships or grants that help them pursue their goals in life with a focus on competitive skiing, outdoor recreation, education, music, and the arts.
Those in pursuit of these life goals, ages 25 and younger, are encouraged to apply through April 30, 2022. Scholarships are merit-based, and applicants are evaluated based on need, passion, dedication to achieving excellence, work ethic, community involvement and recommendations from a teacher, coach, or community leader.
The scholarship has been established in honor of Paul Allen Cuthbertson, who passed away on May 19, 2019, after sustaining injuries while skiing and hiking on New York Mountain in Eagle County. Paul is remembered as a mountain-sports athlete with a zeal for life who internalized the phrase “Live for Those Who Cannot” after losing friends and family before their time.
Support Local Journalism
In the days following Paul’s passing, his family established The Paul Cuthbertson Foundation to support goal-oriented youth who have a passion for life. The foundation has now amassed sufficient funds to allow for the third round of scholarships, which will be awarded in early 2022.
Applicants will be asked what they hope to achieve through the award, why they need financial assistance and how the assistance will help them achieve their goals.
“Live for those who cannot” is a philosophy that Paul created, lived by, and had tattooed on his forearm. In memory of Paul and this approach to life, the foundation is pleased to award the Live for Those Who Cannot scholarship.
Donations for the scholarship are currently being accepted by the Foundation.
