To support summer programming
Through the generosity of the class of 1968, Midland is offering funding to cover part or whole of the tuition of a wilderness-based program and/or wilderness skills training over the summer. The goal is to provide advanced opportunities for select Midland students to foster a deeper connection to the environment, build their leadership skills, and to encourage the development of skills necessary for a lifelong engagement with the natural world.
Preference will be given to students with a demonstrated interest in the Outdoors Program, including having completed at least a semester of Outdoor Leadership and shown a commitment to become a Midland Steward. Students with more time to give back to the Midland community will also receive preference, though all returning students are eligible to apply.
