Exploration Fund

Scholarship Description

The Exploration Fund of The Explorers Club provides grants in support of exploration and field research.  Grants in amounts of up to $1,200 are made primarily to graduate students.  Applications will be judged on the scientific and practical merit of the proposal, the competence of the investigator and the appropriateness of the budget.  Awards will be made regardless of whether or not the applicant is a member of The Explorers Club.  The decision of the Board of Directors will be final.  Recipients of grants are expected to provide a one or two page report on their exploration or research within the year.  It should be emphasized that those projects aided will be for scientific purposes, in accordance with the Club’s stated objective, to broaden our knowledge of the universe.  Mere travel to remote areas will not be considered.  The Club’s name or Flag may not be used for any commercial purpose.
