  • I am aged between 18-26 years
  • I am volunteering in my community or I am experiencing financial/personal hardship

 

Please read:

Scholarship funding is only available for select Ka Mahi courses throughout each year.

Ka Mahi scholarships are available thanks to the support of our generous donor community and the Outward Bound Foundation Trust. Funding of up to 70% of the Outward Bound course fee is available depending on circumstances. Each scholarship recipient is responsible for funding the remaining balance of the course fee, plus all associated travel and medical costs.

Please do not book yourself on a course and then apply for a Ka Mahi scholarship. Successful applicants will be booked by our Enrolments team.

All applicants will receive a response regarding their application by email or phone within 30 days from submission.

Successful applicants must pay a non-refundable $100 deposit fee within 7 days of accepting a Ka Mahi scholarship offer. Unpaid deposit fees will result in the cancellation of any existing Ka Mahi scholarship offer.
