2015 Jackson Hole Babe Force Scholarship Application

Goals. We all have them. We all want to achieve them, though sometimes obstacles out of our control can stand in our way. The Jackson Hole Babe Force Scholarship Program is designed to offer financial support to women to succeed in the mountains. This year we have raised funding to help two deserving women reach their goals.

The women at Jackson Hole Babe Force are so excited to help women achieve their mountain goals and we have been working hard to raise support for and develop this scholarship program. Our goal is to build upon our foundation and grow this program in the years to come.

The theme of the 2015 Jackson Hole Babe Force Scholarship Program is snow safety.

This year is our first scholarship program and we are excited to announce that we will be providing scholarships to two women to attend and complete the American Avalanche Institute Level 1 course.
