MOUNTAINEERING TRIP FUNDING

Climbing and mounteering, especially abroad, can be somewhat costly. Fortunately, there exist sources of funding to help you get your ideas going.

*A junior member is a matriculated member of a College or Hall who is reading and registered for a recognised degree, diploma or certificate.

College Grants

Many colleges have their own travel or adventurous expedition grants. Naturally, these are only offered to the members of those colleges, but checking with the bursary or college lodge should help for finding out more information.
