James Herrera Scholarship


Dear James Herrera Scholarship Applicant,

Thank you for your interest in the James Herrera Scholarship (JHS). Below is general information and the requirements of the scholarship and the JHS application itself. By submitting a signed application, you agree to all terms, conditions and requirements of the JHS program.

The James Herrera Scholarships are awarded to applicants based primarily on financial need. Open to all ages of participants 7 to 18 years of age. Registration for the program must be filled out and submitted prior to scholarship application submission.

An applicant’s character, goals, community involvement and special circumstances will also be taken into consideration.

Priority will be given, in order to 1) Taos County residents 2) New Mexico residents 3) Out-of- State residents.

Should an athlete be awarded a scholarship, the recipient and their parents/ legal guardians will be required to participate in two (2) TWST events (fund raising, local race events, etc.) These opportunities will be identified below (Attachment I). Failure to do so will result in disqualification for future JHS consideration.

The JHS review committee is comprised of TWST staff and board members. All applications are reviewed in a timely manner.

Please indicate what percentage of the program fees you are requesting for your scholarship. If a partial scholarship is awarded, the balance of the program fees must be paid in full before the athlete will be allowed to participate in the program.

Again, thank you for your interest,

Kristi Vine, Executive Director and
TWST Scholarship Committee
