The Northeast Region High Adventure Program Scholarship was created in hopes to provide monetary support to Arrowmen within the Region by paying a partial or full scholarship to one of the Order of the Arrow High Adventure Programs at Philmont Scout Ranch, Northern Tier, the Florida Sea Base, and the Summit Bechtal Family National Scout Reserve.
It is the purpose of the Region to provide for first-time participating Arrowmen in hopes to enlighten their Order of the Arrow experience through participation in one of these programs. These programs are the epitome of what the OA represents: Brotherhood, Cheerfulness, and Service. It is for this reason that the Northeast Region and its leadership find it so imperative to not only support these programs but to also offer financial assistance for Arrowmen 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, this 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 and sections. It is expected of the recipients to continue their service in the Order 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 Region with an account of their experiences that can be posted on the Region website for recognition and promotion for the programs and the scholarship.
The minimal amount awarded to recipients will be up to $250. The Region Key 3 will determine the committee which will select the recipients each year.
Requirements to be considered for the OAHA Scholarship:
Applicants will be notified of their selection no later than March 31st. The scholarship money will be sent from the Region in the form of a reimbursement check after they have attended the program unless set up otherwise in conjunction with the Region Key-3.
