Just a quick heads-up for anyone looking for funding for their next adventure. The inaugural Outside Adventure Grant is still up for grabs, but you’ll have to hurry. Outside magazine is accepting applications for the grant through May 18, which just so happens to be next Friday.
Applicants for the grant, which is worth $10,000, simply need to fill out a brief online form that includes contact information and a short 500-word essay explaining your proposed adventure and what makes it unique and worthwhile. There are also options to include a photo or video as well, although they aren’t mandatory for consideration.
Once the application process has closed, editors will select finalists based on “ambition, creativity, and feasibility of the entry, as well as how effectively you communicate these qualities.” The winner will then be picked via a vote on the Outside Facebook page starting on June 4.
If you’ve been dreaming of an expedition for some time, but have lacked the funds to be able to pull it off, now is your opportunity to make it a reality. Sign-up for the grant. What’s the worst that can happen?
Good luck everyone!
