    02/17/21

    Based in Tignes, France at 2100m, Apex provides talented skiers with world class Learning, Training and Performance programmes to help create future Champions. The application period 2021 for the Apex2100 scholarships is now open with the following timeline:

    1st March: Deadline application for Scholarship to stefanie.gerber@fisski.com
    15th March: 1st Decision of application to National Ski Federation
    31st March: Final Decision for Scholarship Candidates
    28th April-2nd May: Selection Day in Tignes for finale candidates of the 2021/2022 scholarship November: Start of the official Scholarship

    National Ski Associations from FIS (FIS Development Members) can apply for athletes who have represented their sport (alpine skiing) at national level or regional level, or are sports performers who can demonstrate that they have the potential to compete at these levels. Application from athletes/coaches or other parties which are directly sent to FIS will not be considered. The National Ski Association as mentioned above is eligible to send an application for 1 female and 1 male athlete.

    The International Ski Federation together with Apex2100 will evaluate all application received by the mentioned deadline. 10 Candidates (5 male/5 female) will be invited to participate at the Apex2100 – Selection Days. During these days, athletes will learn about the Academy structures, will undergo different physical tests and will be evaluated by their current skiing skills. The Selection Days will be around 3 - 6 Days and will take place at the Academy in Tignes (FRA). A daily schedule will be distributed before the Selection Days. Apex2100 Coaches and a FIS Coach will then evaluate the results and decide about the award of the Scholarship.
