For a semester or yearlong expedition, NOLS will match your education award up to $2,000 dollars. For any other expedition or wilderness medicine course, you can apply your award toward the cost of your course, just like a scholarship. We also encourage you to use additional financial aid options, like applying for NOLS scholarships or using Veterans Benefits.

Courses Eligible for $2,000 Match

  • Any semester in a U.S. or international location

Courses Eligible for Your Education Award

  • Any expedition except Leave No Trace and NOLS Alumni Trips
  • Any first aid certification, including Wilderness First Responder and Wilderness EMT
