Patagonia partnered with the AMGA in 1990–making the outdoor retailer one of our earliest partners. While Patagonia supports both male and female guides, the company hopes to see a greater representation of women in the guiding industry, and so provides a scholarship in any discipline to an eligible female. As a Benefactor Partner, Patagonia also makes contributions that help to keep tuition costs down for all guides.
