May 29th 2023 is the 70th anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Everest—the world's highest mountain—by Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay. 


The Mount Everest Foundation (MEF) is a grant-giving body supporting exploratory scientific and mountaineering expeditions to mountain regions. Their grants are open to teams from the UK and New Zealand and they’re keen to hear from more New Zealand applicants.
