Grants & Scholarships
The American Avalanche Association (A3) furthers its mission by annually funding grants on snow and avalanche research and regional education events. These programs help share accurate information on snow and avalanches, facilitate technical transfer between research scientists and field practitioners, and promote research into topics that increase knowledge on snow and avalanche phenomena.
A3 awards research grants to members conducting research on snow avalanches. Both graduate students and field practitioners are encouraged to apply. Preference is given to proposals whose results will both benefit avalanche field practitioners and will extend our understanding of snow and avalanche phenomena. Proposals should embody the theme of the International Snow Science Workshop (ISSW), an international meeting of snow scientists and avalanche practitioners, “A merging of theory and practice”. A3 allocates $5000 a year to this program and funds up to two proposals annually. Applications due by October 1st

REGIONAL EDUCATION GRANTS
A3 currently awards grants to support regional avalanche education and professional development events. The A3 Governing Board awards grants once a year to those events that best advance A3’s mission and goals. Grant amounts vary, depending upon funding available. Please note: awards may not equal the amount requested and the board may choose not to fund all requests. Application Due by April 15, 2019.
