AMSAF Continues to help the Community and help reduce motorcycle crashes and fatalities in Arizona!

In July AMSAF announced through a press release that we had received a Grant from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and will start giving out Financial Assistance for Motorcycle training.

Well that time is almost there and starting in September we will again offer Scholarships for motorcycle training.

We have received many calls and emails on when it will start up and we appreciate your calls and support of AMSAF.

We’ve made some changes to our program in September and would like to spell those changes out in the following paragraphs.

Our goal is to help as many folks financially as we can to get into a motorcycle training course.

AMSAF Motorcycle Training Financial Assistance Scholarship Program

We realize that each of the Schools throughout the State charge a different rate for Motorcycle Training.

Some are lower and some are higher. In addition, the schools have a number of promotions that are going on to get riders in at different times.

AMSAF is not trying to specify or suggest what each school should charge for their classes.

That is a pure business decision by each school.

Our assistance that we offer is for the Motorcycle Training Assistance Scholarship program and our goal is to get as many as we can to enroll in motorcycle training classes and to help you financially in that process through this Scholarship Assistance.

We feel education is critical and we want to get as many folks into the schools to help get their M endorsement and help them financially.

Listed below is the website for each School that participates in our program to identify their cost for Basic Rider Course (BRC) and Basic Rider Course 2 (BRC2).

The Scholarship assistance that you will receive from AMSAF has a value of $225.00 for the Basic Rider Course (BRC) and $120.00 for the Basic Rider Course 2 (BRC2).

It is your responsibility to see if there is an additional cost with the school and what that amount is.

AMSAF will allow a Scholarship assistance if you complete the course and pass or fail.

Our hope is that you pass.

We will not pay if you don’t show or drop out.

That is a financial responsibility between you and the school. 

When will Scholarships Open up?

We will offer Scholarships for all counties with the exception of Maricopa and Pinal on the 1st Monday of the Month.

On the 3rd Monday of the month, we will offer Scholarships for Maricopa and Pinal County.

In both cases, we will open the Scholarship application at 8:00 AM.

If you live in any of those counties you will only be able to apply at the time your county is open.

As in the past, we will have an allotment of scholarships each month and when they are gone, the application closes down.

If you get into the application and go totally through the process to include your donation, you will receive a Scholarship.

We don’t pick and choose who gets a scholarship, it’s totally on demand.

Again AMSAF’s goal is to help as many individuals in the State to get into a motorcycle training course and help you financially as much as we can with our Scholarship Assistance program.

Be sure to check with the Schools on their cost for the course and what you’re out of pocket cost is.

Take the time to invest in yourself and lets together help reduce motorcycle crashes and fatalities’ here in Arizona.

We want to thank the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, Director Gutier and Governor Ducey for their support of motorcycle safety and for the help in getting more folks into motorcycle training.  Please invest in you, your family and your friends by taking a course.

Thank you again for your support of AMSAF. Remember you can help us by donation to AMSAF and helping to get other’s into motorcycle training.
