Support Emerging Youth Leaders

We try to keep the cost for participation Ocean Heroes Bootcamp as low as possible, with a minimal cost of $90USD per participant, which covers programming, housing for three nights, and meals. The main cost for participants is travel to and from Vancouver, for which we try to make at least partial scholarships available to all applicants who apply to help cover those costs.

A limited fund to support partial travel scholarships is available to Ocean Heroes whose applications are accepted and indicate they would like to be considered for that support. 

How do I apply for a scholarship?

When you complete your application for Ocean Heroes Bootcamp, you will have the opportunity to indicate that you would like to be considered for a travel scholarship. When you check this box, you will be prompted to complete a short survey to gauge the extent of your travel expenses and need. Scholarships will only cover a portion of travel expenses, so Ocean Heroes should be considering how they can raise funds to cover the remainder of the cost.

Is the scholarship value in Canadian or US dollars?

The value communicated to you is in US dollars.

Can my parent or guardian also apply for a scholarship? 

No, scholarships are only available to youth participating in Ocean Heroes Bootcamp. Parents and guardians can apply to serve as a dorm chaperone, for which they can receive a $250 stipend. 

If I am awarded a scholarship, how will I receive it?

Scholarships are intended to cover the expenses involved in traveling to and from Vancouver, BC to attend the Ocean Heroes Bootcamp. If you would like to apply your scholarship to the purchase of your airfare, you will need to go through the travel agency that is working with OHBC, Stage and Screen Travel, to book your flight. There is a $30CAD fee to use their services, which will be deducted from the scholarship amount. 

If you would prefer to book your own travel, you will have the value of the scholarship reimbursed after you have participated in Ocean Heroes Bootcamp. You will be provided with a form to complete by July 31, 2020 and reimbursement payments will be processed and sent by the end of August 2020.
