The winning schools were Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, University of California Merced in Merced, California, University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland, and University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Grant requirements include an initial campus event to engage new students in the outdoors, ongoing outdoor activation, two outdoor activities with local youth-serving organizations and a National Park outing.
