This year, USA Climbing is offering two scholarship opportunities to our collegiate members.
The Collegiate Climbing Ambassador Scholarship is an opportunity for competitors to demonstrate how they have become an ambassador for the sport of climbing. The Diversity Equity and Inclusion Scholarship allows students to demonstrate how they have helped make the sport of climbing more inclusive. All collegiate members are welcome to apply and skill will not be a metric used to determine recipients.
To be considered, applicants must be a current collegiate member and submit a resume and an essay based on the prompt for the scholarship they are applying for. USA Climbing will be awarding $3,000 in scholarships: first place $1,000 and second place $500 for each scholarship. Applications are due February 15th at 11:59 PM MT. Please submit application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The top five for each scholarship will then be interview by members of the selection committee and the winners will be announced at Collegiate Nationals April 22nd – 24th.
The selection committee is made up of members of the USA Climbing staff, Collegiate Climbing Committee and Divisional Coordinators. Reach out to Rachel Owens, Collegiate Series Manager, email@example.com, with any questions.
