The American Alpine Club has launched a series of “Live Your Dream Grants” to support climbers with ambitions for their own improvement and experiences as climbers. Sport, trad and ice climbers, boulderers and mountaineers are invited to apply for these $300 to $1,000 grants for funding to spur them into that first big wall trip, travel to a competition, attempt an iconic route or visit a classic climbing destination.
Professional climbers and sponsored climbers are not eligible. The grants are among several new opportunities launched this year as part of the American Alpine Club’s move to make its resources more accessible, which will include increased digital access to their extensive library, a new annual publication and doubled coverage for their rescue insurance holders.
Grant applications for the Rocky Mountain region, available at americanalpineclub.org/grants, opened on March 21 and will close May 1.
