OHA Scholarships are available based on need.
Scholarships are available, based on need, for groups participating in Outdoor Hostel Adventures (OHA). These grants support the commitment of Hostelling International to provide opportunities for youth in underserved communities by environmental education.
Revenue that supports the Dorothy Fowler OHA Scholarship Fund is raised by HI USA, Northwest Region. The generosity of individual donors, private donations and foundation and governmental grants makes these scholarships possible.
Groups may apply for OHA Scholarships based only on the need of their students.
Grant awards consider the demonstrated financial need of students, as well as evidence that teachers or group leaders are using the OHA program to support student learning and performance, by linking pre- and post-trip classroom projects to the OHA experience.
Groups who have never received an OHA Scholarship and are deemed eligible, and groups who have never participated in an OHA program before, may receive additional consideration.
