For any non-semester NOLS Expedition

NOLS Scholarships are need-based and can cover up to half of course cost. Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, and we encourage you to apply early. NOLS Expedition Scholarships range from 10-50% of course cost. Full scholarships are not available at this time.
