Level Six Youth Paddling Scholarship


Welcome to the Level Six Youth Paddling Scholarship application page! 

Clearly, youth is the future of our sport, and we have decided the best way to share our love and passion for paddling and the outdoors, is to get more kids on the water! We have selected a few schools around Canada and the US to start and hope to send as many kids as possible. By supporting Level Six you help support the many grassroots initiatives we run.

Transportation to and from the school is not provided, so please only apply to programs in your area that you would be willing to travel to. More details about the specific programs and dates are located in the application forms below.

Application forms require personal information and a short essay on why you would like to try whitewater paddling. Participants will be picked based on this criteria.  

Application Deadline Extended! Applications are NOW OPEN until Friday June 16 2023
