The OutdoorRated Yearly Scholarship Program

“I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.”

– Henry David Thoreau

OutdoorRated is dedicated to helping thousands of people get outside with our in-depth guides and outdoor gear reviews.
(Examples: The Best Full Face Snorkel Masks, The Best Concealed Carry Holsters)

We want to help foster the love of the outdoors for generations to come and so we have created the OutdoorRated Scholarship Program for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students. The Winning Finalist will be selected August 31st 2017 and receive $1,000 (and some sweet gear) to put towards their education.

This scholarship is open to students of all majors and years. Submissions for the scholarship will be accepted from May 1st – August 1st.
