In partnership with Women of Winter (WoW), this scholarship program awards people who identify as female Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) with an education opportunity to obtain a PSIA-AASI alpine or snowboard Level I certification that will encourage and support BIPOC women to pursue opportunities to teach skiing or snowboarding.
During the 2021-22 season, PSIA-AASI and WoW will host five instructor Level I certification events around the country for BIPOC women. Participants must select the location they would like to attend, submit an application, and then will be considered to receive a scholarship to attend one of these events. There are a maximum of six participants at each event.
