Surf Life Saving New Zealand has once again been given the opportunity to be a part of Outward Bound's community scholarships scheme.

Many applications were received from all over the country, making the judging process a difficult undertaking for the selection panel.

Surf Life Saving New Zealand is pleased to announce the following candidates have been successful in their applications for 2014:

Classic Course

Outward Bound is an adventure-based experience located in Anakiwa, Marlborough Sounds, that uses the outdoors to challenge participants mentally and physically. People from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, abilities and ages attend Outward Bound.

For several years now, Outward Bound has offered Surf Life Saving New Zealand a scholarship scheme which has given many of our members the opportunity to try a range of their courses.

More Outward Bound scholarships will be available next season through SLSNZ.
