The Outward Bound California Tuition Reduction Program is guided by a single principle:
Every person should have the opportunity to experience adventure and challenge, develop character and compassion, and learn leadership skills and service ethics—regardless of financial ability.
We are intentional in our efforts to bring together diverse groups of students, including reducing an economic barrier of access. Outward Bound California firmly believes that a diverse student population encourages the cultural competency and teamwork skills that enable participants to become principled leaders.
Thanks to generous donations from alumni, parents, corporations, foundations and others, 2/3 of participants of Outward Bound California receive tuition assistance and are, therefore, able to attend course.
See our sidebar on the left for specific scholarships and programs to offset costs.
