About SheJumps Snowpack Scholarship
Details to apply for the 2019/2020 program below.
The 2018-2019 Snowpack Avalanche Scholarship Program provided 23 scholarships with 100% cost covered, and 7 scholarships with 50% cost covered for AIARE courses. SheJumps Washington team ran 3 AIARE Level 1 courses in the Seattle-area: two at Stevens Pass, and one at Mount Rainier between the months of late-January to early-March.
We had 105 applicants, and selected 30 women as recipients. 50% of the women selected for scholarships identified as women of color, and 100% of the women identified as low-income.
Here are some postings about the program from last year:
For the 2019-2020 season, we are expanding the program to include WA, OR, and CO with 10 scholarship spots per region, meaning 30 AIARE Level 1 spots in total.
The program will be run again by SheJumps Washington volunteers and NWAC. Scholarship funds were donated by Fremont Brewing and K2 Skis.
