Scholarship Application

When considering joining one of our programs we encourage you to consider the cost of your attendance as an investment.  Not simply as part of your academic education, but in shaping the person you are.

We understand the cost of that investment is substantial, so for those who show a great potential to succeed and grow from traveling with us, yet would otherwise be unable to attend without financial assistance, we welcome you to apply for financial assistance.  As funds are limited we do request that only those that truly need assistance request it.  The total amount of funds available for any given program will vary and there are programs where no funding is available.

Application & Confirmation Timeline

We accept scholarship applications on a rolling basis and typically review and make determinations based on the amount requested:

  • March: 10%
  • April: 20% &30%
  • May: 40%

    If we are able to offer assistance to attend our summer adventure programs, we will contact you and ask that you make one of the following choices:

  • Option 1 (Accept) – Accept the scholarship – At this point, you will be asked to complete the standard enrollment application along with the $1000-$1500 deposit needed to confirm and reserve the space. The applicant will be given a unique scholarship code to be used during the enrollment application to confirm the scholarship award.
  • Option 2 (Deny & Review) – In this case, we will contact you if additional funding or adventures become available. It should be noted that previous scholarship offers may no longer be available. Available scholarship offers may increase or decrease depending on current enrollment, remaining scholarship funding, etc.
