A new grant for adventure.

The Next Challenge Expedition Grant

The Next Challenge Expedition Grant is a new fund for adventure.

It will be awarded in August 2015 to an individual or team planning an exciting expedition and in need of a helping hand.

I am asking for 100 donations of £2.

I will match the total with £200 of my own money.

:

*** Please only donate £2. No more. ***

It's very kind of you but I want 100 small donations rather than anything larger.

How will the grant work?

Applications opened on Tuesday 23rd June. They are administered by me through my website – www.thenextchallenge.org

The process has three stages:

  • Brief outline application form (deadline: July 19th)
  • Shortlist invited to submit detailed applications (week of July 20th)
  • Skype interviews (week of August 10th)

:

Who is the grant for?

The grant is open to anyone but aimed at those new to adventure. It will be for independently organised expeditions, operating on a small budget and happening in the next year. I'll be looking for something original and interesting.

:

Why are you doing this?

I received many expedition grants when I was younger. 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.

:

What do I get for my £2?

For the price of a bus ticket / sandwich / pint, you get to:

  • Be part of a small group who have made someone else’s expedition possible.
  • Live vicariously through an adventure that you helped get off the ground.
  • Receive exclusive updates about the grant and the winner’s expedition.

Please don't donate any more than £2. I want this to be a grant of small donations from lots of people. I also intend to run it every year.
