OA High Adventure Scholarship
The Western Region Order of the Arrow Committee feels so strongly that the OA High Adventure program leaves a lasting impression and energizes the Arrowmen that participate they would like to offer each to every lodge in the Western Region a $300 scholarship that can be used to cover participation fees for any one of the following four Order of the Arrow High Adventure programs in the summer of 2018:
- OA Trail Crew at Philmont Scout Ranch
- Wilderness Voyage at the Charles L Sommers Canoe Base
- Canadian Odyssey at the Charles L Sommers Canoe Base
- Summit Experience at the Summit Bechtel Reserve
- Participants will need to provide your own transportation.
- Scholarship money cannot be used for OA Ocean Adventure.
- The Western Region will not register on your behalf. You must follow the normal application process.
- An applicant must be registered in their OAHA program of choice and have placed the required deposit for that program before being awarded a scholarship.
- Starting this year, lodge’s will be given the opportunity to utilize five scholarships after March 31st until all scholarships for that year have been used.
The region is also now offering a contingent scholarship system for groups of Arrowmen from the same lodge that wish to attend an OAHA program together. This program offers three scholarships as well as a $500 travel stipend to a group of five Arrowmen from the same lodge. For a group to qualify, the five Arrowmen must be registered for the same program and have placed the deposit required for that program.
If you wish to use the contingent scholarship and have met the prerequisite requirements please contact Adam Sommers and Mike Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
