Each year, outdoor industry leaders and private foundations generously give to the AMGA to help guides and aspiring guides reduce the costs associated with AMGA training. This year, we are happy to announce our 2023 scholarship opportunities open to our members applying to courses or exams in the Mountain Guide Program. Our scholarship program allows AMGA guides and aspiring guides resource assistance to reduce program costs and advance their education.


If you are awarded a scholarship, when AMGA programs open you need to:

  • Apply for a program within the application deadlines
  • Pay program application fees
  • Be accepted into a program 

Thanks to our membership we have received key feedback to make this process more transparent for you all. Below you will find key information and please read before applying.  Additionally, we have updated our scholarship process and you can read more here. Email us with questions.
