PINNACLE PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS
We are excited to begin the Pinnacle Scholarship application process for the upcoming summer. Outward Bound California is proud to continue our commitment to offering access to the outdoors for youth and young adults in California!
As in previous years, our course offerings for Pinnacle Scholarship recipients will be based entirely within California. This is a fantastic opportunity for youth to explore the incredible wilderness areas right in their own backyards while building bonds with students from across the United States and around the world. Our course areas include such beautiful locations as the Southern Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Greater San Francisco Bay Area.
Following the course, please check in with your student about their experience. We'll send out a debrief survey to Partners, we'd love to have feedback: both positive and constructive about your students experience and yours.
Assist students with scheduling their post course phone / survey check in six months after course (if necessary).
Please review these documents yourself, and then share them with any potential Pinnacle Scholarship applicants within your organization. Once you have identified your potential applicants, please work with them and their families to complete the application and submit everything to Outward Bound California by the Application Due Date.
Please note that this deadline has been scheduled to allow partners maximum time to complete all the necessary materials. As such, we ask that partners do their best to work within this timeline, as late applications and/or requests for extensions can have a significant effect on our applicants.
Be aware that due to the limited number of Pinnacle scholarships available each year, not every student who applies for a scholarship will necessarily be accepted. While we do our best to place as many Pinnacle applicants as possible on Outward Bound courses, we encourage Pinnacle Partners to work with their applicants to explore other summer opportunities in case they are not chosen for an Outward Bound scholarship this year.
On a similar note, we are also accepting applications for our full tuition Youth Leadership Corps Scholarships this summer for up to twenty Bay-Area-based students. If you think this program might be a better fit for your students please direct them to to the YLC page. YLC applications are due middle of March.
We are delighted to continue our partnerships with you and your students. Thank you in advance for your diligence and support of your students. We are looking forward to an amazing summer season!
Please direct students to select three options from the list below on their application. If the student is selected as a scholar, we will offer one of the courses from their selections.
