The American Council of Snowmobile Associations (ACSA) scholarship is available to either graduating high school seniors or persons currently enrolled in college or trade school full time (12 semester credits), either physically or online.

Requirements are as follows:
- The applicant or immediate family must be a paid member of a state snowmobile association,
and the state association must be a member of ACSA.

All applicants will be notified of the final scholarship selection by April 15, 2024. The scholarship winner will be publicly announced at the International Snowmobile Congress (ISC) in June. While ACSA understands it may be difficult for the winner to attend the ISC, at the very least, ACSA may attempt to make an electronic presentation to the winner and record it for playback at the ISC.
