Expedition Fund Grants 2023

NZAC has a long history of supporting international climbing expeditions. Our most recent Expedition Fund grant is to Alastair McDowell, Hamish Fleming, Matthew Scholes and Matthew Clark to support an attempt on a new route on Makalu (8481m), the world’s fifth highest peak, in modern lightweight style. They depart in September. We wish them all the best for their climbing and for a safe return.

If you'd like to apply for an Expedition Fund grant, the next round of applications closes July 31. To see all our available grants and funds, click here.
