BMW MOA Scholarships & Grants

The BMW Motorcycle Owners of America supports rider training in many ways, even for non-members of the club. Through raffles and other fundraising efforts, they provide financial assistance to encourage riders to pursue motorcycle training. This includes Cornering Confidence courses. 


Paul B. Scholarships: The BMW MOA Foundation will award grants of up to $250 for MOA members, or up to $100 for non-members to assist them in pursuing rider education and training opportunities. Requests must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the registration deadline for the training course selected and should contain a description of the training including the training provider, cost, location, and dates of the training. Link to application.

Paul Bachorz's Scholarship Fund has helped many riders afford training over the last 10 years


NEW! Group Training Grants: This brand new program provides Training Grants for clubs or riding buddies, allowing groups to use the trainer of their choice to fit the group’s needs. To request this grant, simply include the following in a short written request: a)  the details of the group, training, provider, etc., b) the total request should be no greater than $200/person, These requests for funding should be sent to Tom Gary, Foundation Board President at Wouldn’t it be great if your club was the first to take advantage of these GTG’s?
