The Explorers Club and Eddie Bauer Offer Expedition Grants
The Explorers Club and Eddie Bauer are joining forces to offer adventurers an opportunity to get their expeditions funded. Applications are now being accepted for two Explorers Club-Eddie Bauer Grants, each of which offer $25,000 to worth recipients.
The first grant is the The Explorers Club - Eddie Bauer Youth Grant, which will be given to one or more eligible applicants (valid student I.D. required) for work in climate change, preservation and sustainability, consistent with the mission of The Explorers Club. Applicants must display a history of field research or academic study in one of these areas, although they do not need to have an advance degree. The $25,000 award could be divided amongst up to three projects if the grant board finds them worthy.
The second grant is The Explorers Club - Eddie Bauer Grant for Expeditions, which is to be used to fund one or more eligible expeditions relating to climate change, preservation and sustainability, consistent with the mission of The Explorers Club. The goal of this grant is to "support field research activities around the world in keeping with the mission of The Explorers Club and the untamable spirit of adventure, core to the Eddie Bauer brand." This one is more open in terms of who can apply, although the focus should be on environmental research or sustainability in some way.
