The Ben Hollingsworth Scholarship

Click HERE to apply.


A Whitefish local has set up a wonderful scholarship fund in memory of her nephew, Ben, who passed away from a wake boarding accident.

Ben was a very accomplished mountain biker, skier, and snowboarder. From an early age, Ben developed his skills and love of outdoor recreation by building his own practice jumps in his back yard. He was also deaf.

Ben attended The Learning Center for the Deaf in Framingham, MA from the age of six months through elementary school. He completed high school at Dover-Sherborn High School in Dover MA. He was in his fourth year at the Rochester Institute of Technology and was deeply involved in community service projects at the time of his passing.

To honor Ben’s life, Ben’s relative wishes to offer an annual snowboard scholarship to a Dream Adaptive Recreation athlete to enable him or her to participate in the Alpine winter program at Whitefish Mountain Resort. The scholarship amount is $300 to fund the seven week ski/ride program  and to help purchase any winter “gear” needs.

Preference is given to applicants with a hearing impairment or those that are totally deaf but is not restricted to that requirement.

The scholarship application must accompany a completed winter program application and insurance waiver, and be submitted by December 15th annually.

Dream Adaptive Recreation is honored to offer the “Ben Hollingsworth Honorary Scholarship”. Thank YOU to those who created this fund to honor Ben and his accomplishments through outdoor recreation!
