We are super psyched to officially announce a call for applications for a new scholarship to the Chicks with Picks “The Quickie” ice climbing clinic, Feb. 1-3, 2013, sponsored by Eddie Bauer First Ascent.

The recipient of this scholarship will receive a “tuition waiver” for the cost of the clinic in a double occupancy hotel room at the Victorian Inn, along with up to $1,000 in Eddie Bauer First Ascent outfitting.

“The Quickie” is a two-day intensive ice climbing clinic in the Ouray Ice Park, with instruction provided at a four-to-one ratio by a Chicks Girly Guide. The clinic includes all meals, demo gear and accommodations. Full details on the clinic can be found at the Chicks Climbing website here:

Applicants for the scholarship can have any degree of ice climbing experience; however, they may not be a former Chicks with Picks ice climbing clinic participant. The applicant must be 18 years of age or older and be in financial need of a scholarship.

The recipient of the scholarship will be responsible for paying their own transportation costs to and from the clinic in Ouray, Colo., along with writing a trip report and taking photos that will be published on both the Chicks Climbing and Eddie Bauer First Ascent web properties.

The application for the scholarship can be found here: and must be accompanied by two letters of recommendation.

Chicks Climbing is taking applications for the Eddie Bauer First Ascent “The Quickie” scholarship through Dec. 1, and will announce the recipient by Dec. 15. The scholarship applications will be reviewed by a committee with members from both Chicks Climbing and Eddie Bauer First Ascent. Complete details on the scholarship can be found here:

Additionally, there are also two special offers available for new or returning Chicks with Picks alumnae that can be used on any of the four Chicks with Picks 2013 ice climbing clinics. These discounts are only available through Nov. 22 and include an early-bird $75 discount for those signing up on their own, or a $100 buddy-deal discount for those that sign up with a friend. Complete details on these special offers are available here:

So if you know a gal who has always wanted to come climb with Chicks but hasn't had the finances to do so, please give her the head's up on this fantastic opportunity!

Does this mean the application deadline is extended? On the website it says they would have announced the winner by Dec 15. SavvageA
