SPI Course Scholarship


Climbers of Color has partnered with the American Alpine Institute to offer two BIPOC recipients a 50% scholarship for the American Mountain Guides Association's Single Pitch Instructor (SPI) course. 
About the Course:
The 3-day SPI Course is designed to enable capable recreational rock climbers to start the journey to become climbing instructors. The available 2021 courses are scheduled from March to October and are available in Washington or Nevada.  Information on the specific class can be found here.
*This award will cover 50% of the $585 tuition.
*The two recipients will be enrolled into AAI's SPI course, therefore this is not a BIPOC-only course.
*Current COVID restrictions are limiting class sizes to 4 individuals and the class you choose is subject to availability. 
Application:  OPEN (Deadline January 22nd)
