2021 National Program Scholarship

The 2021 Section NE6B Order of the Arrow High Adventure Scholarship is now available. The application is found on the documents page of the website. We encourage every Arrowmen attending a trek in 2021 to apply.

Background

Order of The Arrow High Adventure (OAHA) offers Arrowmen the opportunity to attend National High Adventure bases at a reduced cost. Generally, during the first week of the trek Arrowmen provide cheerful service. Then during the second week, Arrowmen get to design and participate in a trek of their choosing. All 4 National High Adventure bases offer trek opportunities.

This scholarship was created to provide monetary support to Arrowmen looking to participate in OAHA programs by paying a partial or full scholarship to one of the programs. The sale of the annual fundraising patch funds the OAHA scholarship.

Eligibility

It is not a requirement to be an active member of the Order of the Arrow to participate in any of the High Adventure programs. However, this scholarship is reserved for individuals who exhibit interest and service in the Order. Recipients of this scholarship should continue their service in the Order as well as bring their enthusiasm gained from these programs back to their home councils, and lodges. At the end of their experience recipients will be asked to provide an account of their experience.

In order to be eligible for the scholarship, you must:

  1. Be a dues paid member of your lodge
