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 are looked upon with favor.

These 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 vary by project, but typically range between $300 and $800 and help to cover travel, gear, or other expenses that you need to achieve your objective. The review committee encourages applications from teams emphasizing the fellowship component of their objective.

Application Deadline:

Beginning Fall, 2019, we will only have one application period for the Mountaineering Fellowship Grants.

Applications will only be open from October 1 - November 30
