Started by Canadian climber Vikki Weldon, the Passion for Climbing scholarships are in its 9th year and has raised more than $12,000 for deserving athletes to pursue personal projects such as traveling to Youth World Championships, taking a traditional climbing course in Squamish, purchasing their first crash pad, participating in a climbing course in Chamonix, France, and much more.

These opportunities enable them to become better climbers, better athletes and better individuals. Nurturing their passion for climbing not only encourages them to challenge themselves in all aspects of the sport, but also fosters them to be become local and global ambassadors of our sport!
