College Outdoors is proud to be able to offer scholarships starting Spring 2012 for any student with federal financial aid. The fund provides fall semester and spring semester trip participants with 50% off all trips, excluding WFR and WFR-recertification courses.
For the New Student Trips in August, financial awards are based on financial need, as determined by the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form for that student. So, some students who qualify for Federal aid will get more than 50% in financial aid for their New Student Trips, and some students will get less, depending on their family’s Federally-determined financial need.
College Outdoors will continue this Scholarship Program (if College Outdoors is able to obtain appropriate funding) and in the future, the program aims to provide trips for free to all students via donations to the fund.
