The Philmont Staff Association has provided scholarships since its founding in 1973. From the beginning, the PSA raised funds to provide scholarship for Rayado trek participants, but over the years we’ve expanded to include other Individual Treks, Staff Scholastic Scholarships, and PTC Youth Scholarships. Our named scholarships honor and remember staff that are forever on the trail.
Trek Scholarships, administered by the Philmont Staff Association, are annually awarded to deserving campers who wish to take part in Summer Treks program.
Campers are encouraged to apply.
Each year The PSA raises funds for Seasonal Staff Scholarships that help them financially with their college funding. Each year we award $1,000 to seasonal staff members, each year is different so number of scholsrahips available will vary.
Seasonal Staf is encouraged to apply.
By a generous donation of a Philmont Staff Association patron, the Philmont Training Center will be issuing a limited number of $100 scholarships for youth ages 5-10 years to participate in a Philmont Training Center youth program for their first time. Scholarship funds may be used for youth participating in Philmont Family Program or Philmont Family Adventure conducted at Philmont Scout Ranch only.
PTC Youth are encouraged to apply.
