Who's the Finest Scholarship

It’s the question on everyone’s mind, and something Outward Bound founder Kurt Hahn has been wondering since 1942… WTF!? And by that we mean, Who’s The Finest!?

We’re looking for New Zealand’s finest Do-Gooders, Change Makers and Social Impactors to reward for all their passion, commitment and hard work.

If you’ve been out and about in your community trying to make a difference, whether it be through volunteering for local organisations, investing your time in supporting worthy causes or coaching, teaching, tutoring, and generally helping others, you could well be the finest that we’ve been searching for.

Thanks to our generous funders, we have a few of these WTF scholarships to offer for our upcoming 21 day Classic Courses.

So if you’re 18-26 and think you could well be the finest ‘Community Cupid’ of them all, let us know why below and help us settle the age old debate of… WTF!?!?
