Ordealship

Ordealships

If the cost of an ordeal is prohibitive to a scout attending, they can apply for an Ordealship: a Lodge level scholarship that can help reduce the price.
If you wish to receive an Ordealship, DO NOT Register for your Ordeal – instead, utilize the online Ordealship Application.
Once submitted, the Ordealship application goes straight to the Lodge Key three for review. You must submit your Ordealship Application at least seven days before the registration deadline of Ordeal you plan to attend. You will be notified of its acceptance, or if more information is needed through email.

Ordealships traditionally cover about half of the Ordeal fee, it should be up to the scout to secure the remaining funds.

Any further questions should be forwarded to adviser@tipisa.org.
