The Armstrong Scholars program seeks to inspire young women to reach their highest potential, develop a stronger sense of self and explore their personal connection to nature during a 12-day backpacking adventure in Yosemite's High Sierra. Participants venture into the backcountry with highly skilled female educators for an expedition of discovery, leadership and personal challenge.
This program is inspired by and in memory of former NatureBridge environmental science educator Joie Armstrong.
We're sorry to share that the 2020 expedition of the Armstrong Scholars is cancelled due to the impacts and uncertainty of COVID-19. Thank you for your applications and we hope to adventure with you next year!
