2. PERSONAL INTENT ESSAY
Topic: How have you demonstrated, or struggled with, compassion, integrity, excellence, and/or inclusion & diversity?
3. LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION
Two letters (250-500 words each) of recommendation from non-family members. Each letter should provide information about your background, leadership skills, and potential areas for growth. Letters may be emailed to [email protected] or sent to our office by the person writing them and must include the applicant's name and merit award in the subject line. Be sure these arrive by the due date.
In addition to the application fee, I would like to support Merit Award Scholarships at POBS with an additional donation.
5. INTERVIEW & SELECTION
After your information is received, our Merit Award Selection Committee will review your materials and invite you to an interview session. Decisions will be made and selected students will be informed shortly after.
Those selected will receive a Welcome Packet via email containing course documents including medical and liability forms, packing list, and FAQs.
Thank you for your application. We look forward to guiding you in your challenge to go Outward Bound!
