During the years of 2011-2013 we were seeing an increase in Motorcycle Fatalities and in 2014 it went down. Then in 2015 and into 2016 we’re seeing an increase in Motorcycle Fatalities. Not the trend we want to see. At the same time we’re seeing Motorcycle registrations increase but one motorcycle fatality is one to many.

AMSAF’s goal from day one has been to try and help reduce motorcycle crashes, injuries and fatalities. Every Tuesday on our Facebook page we have Safety tips and at the same time we give out Motorcycle training Scholarships throughout the State. Since giving out Scholarships we have given out more than 1600 Scholarships throughout the State. In Arizona there are six (6) Motorcycle training schools that are certified by MVD and Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF). They have courses all over the State. Check them out at: https://www.amsaf.org/scholarship-psa-01

Arizona residents can apply for an AMSAF Basic Rider Training Scholarship.
Scholarship is open to all Arizona residents’ 15-years 6-months old or older.
AMSAF has received a combination of Grants from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (AZGOHS), Sponsorship and donations. These funds to AMSAF are to continue its Motorcycle Training Scholarship Campaign. These funds enables AMSAF to continue to offer scholarships each month.

There are two scholarship programs available. Each requires a donation at the time of application and is tax deductable:
Basic Rider Course (BRC) valued at up to $300.00 and a $100 donation is required at the time of the application.
Basic Rider Course 2 (BRC 2) valued up to $125.00 and a $50 donation is required at the time of the application.

Motorcycle Training is important and the two Scholarships that we offer can help get your Motorcycle endorsement. According to some statistics about 40% of motorcycle riders are riding without a M endorsement. This Scholarship is a great opportunity to get your motorcycle endorsement and at the same time possible get an insurance discount from your Insurance company.

Have you wanted to learn how to ride a motorcycle or maybe just freshen up your skills? These scholarships can help you on this. At this time we have Scholarship money for this training. Don’t wait and think you’ll do it later. The money could be gone by then. Apply here: https://www.amsaf.org/scholarships
