    High Adventure Program 2012 Scholarship

    Information

    SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS APRIL 21, 2012

    The Section W-4S High Adventure Program Scholarship was created in hopes to provide monetary support to Arrowmen within the section by paying a partial or full scholarship to one of the Order of the Arrow High Adventure Programs at Philmont Scout Ranch (Trail Crew) , Northern Tier (Wilderness Voyage and Canadian Odyssey) and the Florida Sea Base (Ocean Adventure).

    It is the purpose of the section to provide for the Arrowmen of W-4S in hopes to enlighten their Order of the Arrow experience through participation in one of these programs. All programs are the epitome of what the OA represents Brotherhood, Cheerfulness, and Service. It is for this reason that Section W-4S and its leadership find it so imperative to not only support these programs but to also offer financial assistance to the Arrowmen of the Cahuilla, Ta Tanka, Tiwahe, and Wiatava lodges (the Lodge in Long Beach will be eligible in 2013) to help pay for the program costs.

    Although it is not a requirement to be an active member in the order of the Arrow to participate in any of the OA High Adventure Programs, the Section High Adventure Scholarship is reserved for those individuals who exhibit interest and service as well as a future commitment to the Order of the Arrow in their home lodges. It is expected of the recipients to continue their service in the OA as well as bring their enthusiasm gained from these programs back to their home councils, lodges, chapters, and units. Each recipient will be required at the end of their experience to provide the Section with an account of their experiences that can be posted on the Section website for recognition and promotion for the programs and the scholarship.

    The amount awarded will not exceed $200.00/per applicant. The Key 3 (Section Chief, Section Adviser, and Section Staff Adviser) will determine the committee which will select the recipients and amounts each year.

Requirements to be considered for the 2012 OAHA Scholarship:

    1. Must have attended the Section W-4S Conclave in the previous year of applying for the

    scholarship.

    2. Must be in good standing with a lodge in Section W-4S

    3. Must have approval from their Lodge Adviser.

    4. Must have approval from their Council Executive or their designee.

    5. Must meet all requirements and be admitted to an OA High Adventure Program.

    Applicants will be notified of their selection no later than April 30, 2012. The scholarship money will be sent from the Section's host council in the form of a reimbursement check after they have attended the program unless set up otherwise in conjunction with the Section Key-3.
