We apologize for any confusion arising from our recent email. Scholarship applications open in early May of 2016. We will email the membership and update this page when scholarship applications are open.
A key component to the success of the AMGA and its aspiring guides are the scholarships provided by outdoor industry leaders and private foundations. Their generosity means that you—guides and aspiring AMGA guides—have the opportunity to gain the necessary skills and training you need to be America’s best. Of equal importance are the long-lasting bonds developed between you, these industry partners, and the AMGA. Working together, we raise awareness of and respect for the mountain guiding community as a whole.
**Please note: These scholarships are ONLY for students going through the AMGA Guide Track programs. All people interested in SPI or CWI scholarships can contact the SPI or CWI Providers directly.
The 2016 scholarship application period is CLOSED and all recipients have been notified.
2017 Scholarship Applications will be opening in early May of 2016. Exact date TBA – we will update the website and send out a member wide e-mail as soon as the 2017 application period opens.
