A trip on ATYLA can be a life changing experience for trainees, as they live and work as equals on board a ship, while developing their self-esteem and learning skills such as communication, effective leadership and teamwork. These are universally important attributes, but programmes designed to nurture these traits are often only available to the most privileged; therefore at ATYLA we believe that our Educational Programme should be accessible to all, regardless of a person’s income or social background.
Outdoor education and personal development should be accessible to all
It is because of this belief that we created ATYLA’s Equal Opportunities Initiative, offering scholarships to those who wish to join ATYLA’s Educational Programme. If you would like to sail on ATYLA, but do not have the financial means to do so, we invite you to apply for a scholarship under our Equal Opportunities Initiative to help fund your adventure onboard.
+ travel expenses covered
Just like all of the other trainees, each voyage includes accommodation, meals, insurance, etc.
ATYLA’s initiative is funded with the generous support of private donors, community organisations, and corporate sponsors. Using these funds we aim to offer scholarships for at least half of our available trainee places every year. The number of scholarships we can offer depends on the donations and sponsorship we receive. If you know of an individual, or company, capable of making a donation towards ATYLA’s Equal Opportunities Initiative, please share this page with them.
