FMC Young Adults Scholarship Scheme Now Open

Twice per year, the Federated Mountain Clubs opens their competitive scholarship scheme to young adults under the age of 30, in order to promote tramping to younger generations and to explore ways of assisting clubs to attract younger members.

There are two $1,000 grants available for the September 2015 round, and can be used to assist the recipient in leading a multi-day expedition of five or more nights’ duration within mainland New Zealand or its offshore islands. As mentioned above, the recipient must be under 30 years of age at the time of application, and be either a member of a club affiliated with FMC (e.g. tramping or mountaineering/alpine club, university tramping club); or be a member of an organisation associated with FMC (e.g. school, polytechnic, MSC Branch); or be an Individual Supporter of FMC.

Applications must be received by 11 September 2015. For a full list of selection criteria and an application form, please go to http://www.fmc.org.nz/scholarship/
