Northern Wisconsin Outdoor Experiential Education Scholarship Fund

The Northern Wisconsin Outdoor Experiential Education Fund helps residents of Chequamegon Bay communities participate in high-quality outdoors education programs. Applicants should demonstrate financial need and be among groups typically under-represented in outdoors education. Applicants must have lived in the Chequamegon Bay communities of Red Cliff, Bayfield, Madeline Island, Washburn, Ashland or Bad River for at least four years. They must be at least 16 years old, in financial need and not receive an award from this fund for at least five years. They also must have been accepted to a program that emphasizes non-motorized travel in the backcountry, engages in environmentally sustainable practices, encourages participation by people who are typically underrepresented in outdoor education programs and promotes social responsibility. Qualified programs include: Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center, Environmental Traveling Companions, National Outdoor Leadership School, No Barriers USA, Northland College, Outward Bound and Wilderness Inquiry. Anonymous donors who benefitted from outdoors experiences in their lives created the scholarship to help others benefit from similar experiences.
