Major kudos to the Pioneer Fund for continuing their generous support of the Collegiate Championship Award Program:

The annual $13,500 contribution funds two $5,000 awards: one for the senior ladies champion and one for the senior men’s champion; one $2,500 award for the senior ladies silver medalists and one $1,000 award for the senior ladies bronze medalist at the U.S. Collegiate Championships each year.

Started in 1986, the U.S. Collegiate Figure Skating Championships is the longest-running program in the country for collegiate skaters. The competition, held each August, is for junior- and senior-level skaters who are either enrolled in college full time, high school graduates enrolled full time for the fall semester or recent college graduates having finished the previous May.
