(7/28/19) - The 2019 U.S. Collegiate Figure Skating
Championships, hosted by Ice Works Skating Club, will be held July 28-30 in
Aston, Pennsylvania, in conjunction with the 2019 Philadelphia Summer Figure
Skating Championships. Nearly 60 competitors will compete for titles in ladies

The U.S. Collegiate Championships are held every summer and
is the only figure skating event in the country open solely to high-level,
full-time college students. To qualify, a skater must be a current U.S. Figure
Skating member and 1.) a high school graduate who is enrolled full time in a
college or university degree program, 2.) a recent graduate of an accredited
institution or 3.) entering a college or university as a first-year student for
the upcoming semester.
The Collegiate Championship Award Program, started from the
Pioneer Fund, is given out annually based on the results at the U.S. Collegiate
Championships. The program was developed to award the champions a one-time monetary
scholarship. The awards are distributed annually following the winners’
successful completion of their full-time fall term/semester.
Past U.S. collegiate champions include Mirai Nagasu, the
2008 U.S. champion, and Alissa Czisny and Ryan Bradley, who are the 2011 U.S.
