Looking to push your limits? Twenty-five or younger? Fuel your inspiration with a Mountaineering Fellowship Grant.
Started in 1966, Mountaineering Fellowship Grants have long encouraged American climbers age 25 years and younger to go into remote areas and seek out climbs more difficult than they might ordinarily be able to do. Unexplored mountain ranges, unclimbed peaks, and difficult new routes will be looked upon with favor.
The grants are made available through the Boyd N. Everett, Jr. Memorial Fund, the John R. Hudson Memorial Fund, the Rick L. Mosher Memorial Fund, Recreational Equipment Inc. (REI Challenge Fund), and from annual contributions from the public.
Grants are usually between $300 and $800 and help to cover travel, gear, or other expenses that you need to make your dream a reality.
April 1st and November 1st of every year.
