Mt. Hood Meadows has a scholarship program that helps our instructors attend PSIA-NW Certification Exams, Specialist Accreditations and Educational Events. The financial support is for the registration fees associated with the PSIA-NW event you wish to attend. Our scholarship monies are LIMITED each season and do not cover personal expenses like travel, food or lodging. We may offer scholarship dollars to non PSIA-NW events (i.e. USSA certifications or PSIA-AASI National events like National Team Tryouts or National Academy).
