Education Foundation

PSIA-E/AASI has an Education Foundation that is a 501(c)(3) organization. The Foundation awards many scholarships to members wishing to further their education in alpine, adaptive, Children’s, snowboard and Nordic education. The Education Foundation makes PSIA-E/AASI more than just a group of ski or snowboard instructors. The Education Foundation allows us to fund such projects as membership scholarships designed to assist members in furthering their ski teaching careers and studying special populations such as people with disabilities, seniors, and children. The Education Foundation also is the home for association research and educational projects and outreach programs.

Each season, the PSIA-E Education Foundation makes monetary scholarships available to members who wish to further their education or certification status within PSIA-E, PSIA and AASI. The training that members receive as a result of the scholarship program increases their productivity and value as a member and as an instructor in their particular snowsports school. Scholarships are awarded based upon financial need, personal/professional goals, snowsports school experience, and ability and means to share the benefits of the scholarship with other staff members and snowsports area guests.
