Requirements for Funds:
Applications are considered on a rolling basis. Be sure to
include all eligible Participants in your request.
The Award Coordinator will be alerted to the allocation of funds
on behalf of their Participant(s) within 30 days.
Ou Our goal is to support as many participants as possible to engage in the activities of their choice for the Award program. To ensure that financial aid funds can be distributed to as many participants as needed, we encourage them to please consider the most cost-effective options for their activities, and to select activities with reasonable cost. We will not be able to accommodate activities that require expensive equipment as part of the financial aid offer. When possible, we hope that participants can rent or borrow expensive equipment in order to preserve funds for other financial aid requests.
Assistance will be awarded for the following types of activities for
- Payment of the Participant Registration Fee
and/or equipment to fulfill a Participant’s skill, service,
and/or physical recreation section
- Partial payment for rental equipment
and/or fees to participate in the Adventurous Journey and/or Residential
