Our Financial Aid and Scholarship Program is guided by a single principle: that every person should be given the opportunity to experience adventure and challenge, to develop character and compassion, and learn social and environmental responsibility - regardless of financial ability.
Hurricane Island Outward Bound School's scholarships and financial aid support over 200 applicants every year with financial and merit awards. We partner with a number of schools, sponsors and youth development programs to provide opportunities for students to attend HIOBS programs on Scholarship - including Summer Search, the Morehead Cain Foundation, Hesburg-Yusko, and over 30 Leadership Awards in schools across the country.
Financial Aid awards are awarded on a rolling basis. Applications are assessed based on demonstrated financial need and student motivation. Financial Aid at HIOBS is an award, not a loan, and is funded by the generous support of our donors. To learn about how to support our Scholarship and Financial Aid program, please contact us!
