Applying for a Grant

Eligibility and Levels of Grants

All Volunteer Reserve Forces units (including University Units) and Cadets are eligible. Exceptionally grants will be made to individuals, particularly where it can be shown that an appropriate unit expedition is not readily available and that there will be long term benefit to the unit. In the case of Cadets, individuals going on approved civilian run cadet expeditions will be supported through a Cadet HQ or association. Examples of civilian organisations likely to be approved are: British Schools Exploring Society, Outposts, Raleigh International, Trekforce and World Challenge.

In the past, grants have ranged from 1,500 for major expeditions involving larger numbers to 500 for less ambitious ventures and smaller numbers. Occasionally, larger sums, for instance 10,000 or more, have been made to major expeditions, though for these it is essential to discuss them with the Hon Secretary and apply a year ahead.
