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 scholarships can contact the SPI Providers, to see if they offer any scholarships for students.
