Wharton Scholarship Award

Apply today to win a 4 day/3 night trip

down the Colorado River on August 15-18, 2015

Applications due by Friday, May 1, 2015


  • The Wharton Scholarship Award was created in honor of Tom Wharton, a former Splore volunteer river guide who passed away in 2013. The Wharton Scholarship Award gives one lucky participant and his/her companion a trip of a lifetime. This year we are offering this award to a Veteran of the US Military who acquired a disability while in service. This scholarship will cover the cost of domestic airfare to Utah, one night of lodging before and after the trip, transportation in Utah and trip fees for two. The trip is worth approximately $2,500!
  • To apply simply fill in the information below, attach a 500 word essay describing why you want to do this trip and what it would mean to you, as well as a 30-60 second video introducing yourself, and telling us why you want to go on this trip. Applicants must be available August 14-19, 2015, which includes a day of travel before and after the river trip. Applicants must be willing to have their trip filmed and promoted by Splore. Applications must be submitted by May 1, 2015. The winner will be announced May 15, 2015.
