Scholarship Program 2018-2019
The Jackson Hole Babe Force Scholarship Program is designed to offer financial support to women who want to become stronger, smarter, and more confident in the mountains. Our 2018/2019 Scholarship Program is underway, and we’re currently accepting applications!
With your help through our fundraising efforts, we have raised enough funding to offer five types of scholarships this year. Read more about each type below. Applicants may apply to more than one category of scholarship. The application deadline for each of our scholarships is November 26, 2018.
Facing your fears
This scholarship is for one spot at the Elevate Women's Ski Camp at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort on January 14-18, 2019. This scholarship includes rental skis, lift tickets, and four days of world-class instruction designed to take your intermediate-to-advanced ski skills to the next level.
Progression Session I
*New: This year we’ll be offering 24 spots in Progression Session I. This scholarship is for a spot in an all-women's Avalanche Level 1 Course at the American Avalanche Institute hosted by the Jackson Hole Babe Force in Jackson, Wyoming from February 21-24, 2019. This course will be a unique opportunity to learn critical mountain safety while meeting like-minded women in the community, and maybe even some new female backcountry ski partners!
Progression session II
This scholarship provides up to $500 in funding for an advanced avalanche education course of the recipient’s choosing. This scholarship is for women who have completed their Avy 1 certification and want an opportunity to learn critical mountain safety and advance their snow-travel knowledge to the next level, for personal or professional reasons. Recipients can use this scholarship to complete their Avy 2, or professional/guide avalanche certifications.
**New for 2018: Choose Your Own Adventure
This scholarship is for our Choose Your Own Adventure scholarship presented in partnership with Greater Than Sum, a video series about a group of Jackson based skiers using the power of teamwork and their friendship to accomplish their big mountain dreams.
This scholarship is for our younger Babes, ages 9 to 18. This scholarship is for a five-day summer ski racing camp hosted by Keely’s Ski Camp for Girls in the summer of 2019 in Mt. Hood, Oregon.
