Campaign Goal: $15 million
Access and Affordability is our central campaign priority where we seek to drive focused investment to the endowment so that we can better serve our students by securing access to a NOLS education.
For over fifty years, we’ve built NOLS into the world-class institution we are today, and it’s time to bring our life-changing experiences to a wider audience. This campaign will strengthen and extend our mission, making a NOLS experience more accessible and more affordable in order to educate the leaders of tomorrow—students as diverse as the world and as broad as the wilderness.
We are proud to work with a variety of national and local organizations to give underserved and underrepresented youth the tools they need to thrive in their academic and professional pursuits. By increasing scholarship funding, we are able to expose more people to the wilderness through full and partial assistance.
Additionally, the NOLS Fellowship Program provides people of color with employment and education opportunities to learn skills that are transferable to any career path. Fellows become ambassadors of the school and role models who can share their experience, inspiring more people of color to connect with the outdoors.
