BLACKBIRD BIPOC SCHOLARSHIPS FOR 2022/2023
The purpose of the Blackbird BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) and Women's Avalanche Course Scholarships is to acknowledge a lack of representation in the ski industry and remove financial barriers to avalanche education to make backcountry skiing more accessible and representative of our population as a whole.
Applications are due November 25, 2022. You will be notified via email within a week of the application deadline.
To that end, we are offering one BIPOC Avalanche Course Scholarship in California and one BIPOC Avalanche Course Scholarship in Washington. Recipients will be able to choose from the following avalanche courses:
BIPOC Scholarship (California)
BIPOC Scholarship (Washington)
