RMU Scholarship Application
The RMU educational scholarship program supports one recipient with financial aid, gear sponsor and provides mentorship. The program is open to everyone and anyone wanting to pursue a career as a certified guide or avalanche professional.
When great minds, and brands, with shared core values comes together
At RMU, Steamworks Brewery and Stellar Equipment, we believe in community. Based on these values, we created a scholarship program that not only provides financial aid and gear support, but also provides a community and a mentor for support. Apply for this scholarship to receive financial support to pay for your course fees and life expenses.
We are proud to offer one individual with $2500, an RMU Ambassador Level Sponsorship and Mentoring by ACMG Apprentice Ski Guide Sofia Forsman.
This scholarship's goal is to support an individual along their path of becoming a certified guide. It will assist an aspiring ski guide to further their personal and professional development by supporting prerequisite courses and/or other professional development programs that will make the candidate eligible to apply for ACMG or CSGA guide programs.
An idea born out of another good idea - when the giving is good.
Sofia Forsman started the Backcountry Enabler Series in 2020 as accessible education for backcountey awareness. Affordable seminars to “engage, educate and inspire” others to practice safe backcountry habits.
The RMU Scholarship has grown from the series to help support an inspiring individual who, just like Sofia, has aspirations to guide and faces the financial and practical hurdles. This scholarship will support the awarded applicant with the three key components that we identify to be successful: a community, mentorship, gear and financial support.
"I spent years in half broken gear either gifted or thrifted that I couldn't rely on, anything to save a dollar. Now, I'm in a privileged position to help someone else, and it's a given that that's what I will do." - Sofia Forsman
