Grants for Adventure Travel

Want a cool $10,000 to fund your craziest travel idea? Outside is seeking proposals for its first-ever adventure travel grant. From the website:

Examples of the kinds of audacious missions we’re looking for—taken from Outside stories—include sailing a homemade raft down the Hudson River, walking a perfectly straight line across Canada’s Prince Edward Island, and paddling a canoe from Portland, Oregon, to Portland, Maine. Fill out the submission form below by May 18.

Looking for other places to fund your adventure travel ideas? The Timmissartok Foundation offers small grants “to assist individuals with adventurous projects that will take place in a foreign country” and is now accepting applications for 2012. You can also check out the Explorers Club, which provides a variety of grants in support of exploration and scientific research to both members and non-members.  And, of course, there is National Geographic, which offers highly coveted (and highly competitive) grants through its Expeditions Council.

Finally, if you’re looking for a bit of inspiration, this week the National Geographic Adventure Blog compiled a list of “dream trips” from some of the world’s top athletes. Happy (adventure) travels!
