About the opportunity:
There are distinct moments in our lives where a single experience can change the course of our future—expanding our outlook, knowledge, and confidence in ways that we did not know were possible. This scholarship is in the spirit of that belief. In partnership with Outward Bound Costa Rica, NSHSS is awarding one member an all in-country expense paid expedition to Costa Rica!
On a Service, Hike & Homestay adventure course, you will discover the true meaning of “off the beaten path” on a deep-jungle hike while meeting homestay families, learning about new cultures, and discovering your hidden potential. Additional activities include: waterfall rappelling, whitewater rafting, ziplining through rainforest canopies, volunteering on reforestation projects, beach activities, visiting famous National Parks, and spotting monkeys, sloths and other wildlife!
