28-day Scholarship

Nikhil Bhatla is a BOSS alum who graduated from the 28-Day Field Course in 2007. Nikhil has agreed to fund select students who need financial aid to attend the 28-Day, our signature course.

I completed the BOSS 28-day course several years ago, and it changed me like no other experience has.  It was probably the most influential experience of my life.  I understand that the course is expensive and not everyone who would benefit from it can afford it.  In an effort to share the experience with more people, I’ve decided to help fund the 28 day course for selected individuals.  Please see the scholarship details below.  I am very interested in learning about students’ experiences on and after the course, so I ask scholarship recipients to write a reflection after course completion.

Wishing you luck,

Nikhil Bhatla
