There are several financial need-based scholarships available from Philmont, and others may be offered by your local council or elsewhere. Scholarship funding is limited so please apply quickly.
Philmont offers the Waite Phillips Scholarship to help make it possible for a youth member to participate who might not otherwise be able to experience Philmont. Application forms will be sent to the Reservation Contact for each crew before final payments are due in the spring. The application is filled out by an Advisor for a maximum of one youth member per crew; if granted, awards typically cover a portion of the total program fee.
A small scholarship fund has been established to ensure that volunteers and professionals have an opportunity to participate in a summer or fall Philmont Training Center experience. (Scholarships cannot be used for DO-2 courses held at PTC.)
