A Sponsorship Request Form is available to help potential participants solicit funding from individuals or organizations to help offset the cost of course fees, and for those from the neighbor islands, any travel expenses. The objective of the form is to identify the costs, as well as how much the participant is able to afford, and then solicit assistance to help pay the difference. The form includes a contract regarding completion of the course.
A few external scholarship application forms are also available on the Resources Page.
You can register in these ways.
- Online, you will find a printable registration form that can be printed, completed, and mailed to Aloha Council with either a deposit of $75, or payment in full.
- By mailing or bringing a paper registration form to the Council Office.
Applications received with a paid deposit by July 29, 2013 will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis until the course reaches maximum capacity, after which they will be placed on a standby list.
After July 29th, any individuals who paid a deposit, but who have not paid the full fee, will be given notice that their place will be offered to others on the waiting list who have paid in full.
Participants will need to fill out the Annual Health and Medical Report parts A and B.
Detailed instructions, required forms, uniform requirements, personal equipment list, arrival and departure times will be sent to each participant after complete payment is made. You can also find some of this information on the website. If you have any questions, please e-mail the Course Director
