grants for expeditionary projects, generally awarded to small mountaineering or adventure travel teams.
The application deadline for the Shipton/Tilman Grant is March 1st of each year. A panel of independent judges meets annually in March to review all applications and looks for projects that exemplify the Shipton/Tilman philosophy, utilize simple and light alpine style, and align with the small team expeditionary philosophy. Each year between four and six teams receive a grant ranging from $2000 to $10,000. For more information and applications call 1-800-431-GORE or go to goretex.com.
