The Next Challenge Expedition Grant is a new £1,300 bursary for adventure
What You Get
- Money: Up to £1,300 (may be split between multiple winners).
- Kit: from Exped, Primus, Berghaus and more.
- Help: if you want it.
‘Anyone can apply. However, we are particularly interested in people who haven’t done much of this sort of thing before.’
Your trip should be:
- Independently organised: you need to plan the expedition yourself, not join an organised tour.
- Original: it doesn’t need to involve a pogo stick (please) but it should be something interesting.
- Not big budget: we’d prefer to give the money where it will make a difference.
- Happening within the next year: before September 2016.
How it works
There are three stages:
1. Initial Application
A very short Google Form with the basic outline of who you are and what your idea is.
2. Shortlist & Detailed Application
A shortlist will be invited to complete a full application form with more details about their plans.
Deadline: September 13th.
3. Skype Interview
Short online interviews with Tim.
End of September
This grant was originally set up by Tim Moss: ‘I received many expedition grants when I was younger and they helped me undertake some fantastic adventures which have shaped the person I am today. I am now in a position where I can give something back.’
This expedition grant is made possible by six adventurers and 100 members of the public.
Worldwide applicants accepted. Free to apply; deadline: August 26, 2015.
