The Understory Scholarship Fund
Our current priority is building a fund to increase accessibility for young adults to participate in the life-changing learning experience of The Understory. Our goal is that people who are a good fit are able to participate regardless of their means. Scholarship support will be prioritized for BIPOC and others who have often been excluded from opportunities like this.

Gifts of any amount to The Understory Scholarship Fund are meaningful and welcome!

  • $20 buys a journal, the all-important repository of learning and reflection.

  • $60 covers core texts that will stay with the students.

  • $300 covers the local resilience tool kit: knife, pack-basket materials, axe, sharpening stone, and sewing kit.

  • $12,500 pays full tuition for one student.

Thank you for helping to make transformative outdoor education experiences available at Maine Local Living School!
