Thank you for your interest in the Wilderness Adventure Financial Aid program. Each year, Wilderness Adventures provides financial aid opportunities allowing students passionate about joining a WA program to do so without regard to a family’s financial position.

In order to ensure a fair and consistent financial aid process, Wilderness Adventures has an objective application process. Financial aid applications are accepted on a rolling basis. We are now accepting financial aid applications for the 2023 season (WALI Gap Programs and WA Summer Travel Programs).
