Outward Bound courses inspire young leaders through educational programs in wilderness and natural settings. Our Scholarship Program is guided by a single principle: Every person should have the opportunity to experience adventure and challenge, develop character and compassion, and learn leadership skills and service ethics – regardless of financial ability.

We are intentional in our unique ability to bring together diverse groups of students. Outward Bound firmly believes this diversity encourages cultural acceptance and teamwork skills that enable participants to become principled leaders.

Thanks to generous donations from alumni, parents, corporations, foundations, and others, Outward Bound Philadelphia awards up to 80% in scholarship support to students, numerous schools and nonprofits in the Philadelphia area each year.
