Larson – Veneklasen Outdoor Education Scholarship

During the 1980s, Ken Larson and Diane Veneklasen team-taught a class for eighth graders called “Outdoor Education”. Ken designed the class with the Outward Bound philosophy in mind: “to inspire character development and self-discovery…through challenge and adventure.”

Ken and Susan Larson, along with Diane Veneklasen, started this Scholarship Fund to make awards to individuals wishing to participate in an educational, outdoor experience. The purpose of the Larson – Veneklasen Fund is to provide encouragement, support and opportunity to a student, to an  educator, or to anyone  who wants to explore the skills provided  through a choice of three  nationally recognized programs.

Applicants must be Tri-Cities residents who are 16 years or older and can apply for this scholarship at any time.
