How our scholarships are funded...

Scholarship money is primarily raised by a technique created by Florida Odyssey of the Mind Alumni, called Odyssey Couch Surfing. Couch Surfing occurs when an Odyssey Official, who meets the requirements of needing a hotel for a Florida Odyssey event, prefers to “Couch Surf'' or sleep on someone’s couch to save Florida Odyssey of the Mind money. In return, a portion of the money that would have gone to pay for the hotel is given to this scholarship fund.
