Community Scholarship Fund

Varying awards up to $1000 | Open to everyone | For use on any 2023 Freeflow course

The Freeflow Foundation’s Community Scholarship Fund is supported by generous contributions from the Freeflow community. The CSF enables us to provide scholarships to people for whom Freeflow Institute programs might be otherwise inaccessible. We also aim to provide general guidance and support to those unfamiliar with outdoor education or backcountry travel.

While preference is given to applicants from marginalized, underrepresented, or low-income communities, EVERYONE is welcome to apply to the Community Scholarship Fund.

The second and final CSF application period closes May 5, 2023. To ensure your best chance at securing funding, we encourage you to APPLY EARLY. 

If you have trouble understanding or accessing the applications, please contact us at [email protected] and we will help you.

To prevent the loss of your written application content, please SAVE A COPY OF YOUR RESPONSES before submitting the online application form. 

Alternatively, you can print your application responses and mail them to us at Freeflow / PO Box 602 / Milltown, Montana 59851.
