Outward Bound Canada's Bursary Program was created so that all participants, regardless of their financial situation, can access our life-transforming programs and realize their full potential. Our bursaries are awarded to individuals based on their need and the donor's intentions. That said, bursary funds are limited and, unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate all funding requests. Funds are applied directly toward the costs of the participant's course fees and, in select cases, travel or gear for their participation in that course. Priority is given to first-time applicants and the bursary funding pool does vary from year to year; therefore, the amount awarded will depend on the number of applications we receive and the funds available.
For more information on bursaries or to obtain an application, please contact Mary Campbell via email or by phone at 1 888 OUTWARD (688-9273), ext. 211.
Please note all bursary applicants must be Canadian residents.
Because we get so many bursary applications and only have so many funds to distribute, we strongly recommend and encourage applicants to consider raising funds for their course on their own! Click here for a copy of our Fundraising Kit to help you get started.
