Thanks to generous donations from alumni, parents, corporations, foundations and others, Outward Bound’s network of regional schools provides financial aid and scholarships to more than 6,000 students each year.
Financial aid and scholarships are based on need, motivation, and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis by the Outward Bound School where your course is offered.
Financial aid and scholarship awards typically average between 10% and 30% of the course tuition. Most awards will not exceed more than 30% of course tuition.
Financial aid and scholarship awards do not cover transportation to and from the course start location, or personal expenses such as clothing, insurance, airfare and baggage fees.
To request an application for financial aid and scholarships, please proceed with the following steps:
Please Note: Outward Bound requires a $500 deposit be submitted with the Enrollment Form. This deposit is applied toward the total cost of tuition and fees for the course. This deposit is fully refundable in the event you do not qualify for financial aid and need to withdraw your enrollment.
