The Kelly Clark Foundation announced today that it has distributed its first round of scholarships, according to TransWorld Snowboarding. The foundation, established by Olympic gold-medalist Kelly Clark, awarded $11,500 to seven students to attend five schools across the country.

Clark, a Vermont native and scholarship recipient herself, established the nonprofit organization in early 2010 to financially support young snowboarders wanting to attend mountain colleges. This year's recipients will attend Carrabasset Valley Academy (Maine), Mount Snow Academy (Vermont), Okemo Mountain School (Vermont), Steamboat Ski and Snowboard School (Steamboat Springs, Colorado), and Stratton Mountain School (Vermont) for the 2010-2011 academic year.

This weekend, Clark will be riding Killington, Vermont, as she competes in the Dew Tour.
