Applicants Wanted for Live Your Dream Grants Program · April 19, 2012

The American Alpine Club is excited to launch an entirely new kind of climbing grant, born from the idea that the most important climbs are our own.

Live Your Dream Grants provide seed money to climbers—of all disciplines, ages, and abilities—who have ambitions to expand their climbing horizons. This year the AAC is launching the program with $12,000, which will be distributed to at least a dozen individuals or small teams in pursuit of their personal climbing dreams. The emphasis of the grant is on projects that have significant positive impact on grantees’ progressions as climbers.
