The Gene Doyle Memorial Foundation has identified three structured adventure programs that will be available to Collier County students.

  • Outward Bound Wilderness School
  • National Outdoor Leadership School
  • Alaska Mountaineering School

Students may apply through one of these programs.

Structured adventures range in location, duration, cost and activity type. Applicants should review program listings and schedules and then select a specific program. 

After reviewing applications and interviewing finalists, the Scholarship Committee will award up to $4,500 for registration and tuition, and up to $1,000 for airfare and equipment (maximum of $5,500) to scholarship winner. This money will be applied directly to the adventure trips, including travel and supplies.
