From 2019 we have decided to suspend the annual expedition grant, and focus on the avalanche training side of the Chris Walker Memorial Trust.

Chris Walker Memorial Trust Expedition Grant – £1000 per year

Closing date for applications: December 1st each year

This grant is designed to encourage and support ‘Exploration of the Greater Ranges’.  Applications are welcomed from aspiring Greater Ranges climbers who need help to fund expeditions with the objective of establishing new routes, repeating rarely attempted lines or visiting unexplored areas.

If you would like to submit an application for an expedition grant, please fill in the application form.

Final decisions and awards will be made at the AGM of Trustees in Keswick each December.  The award may be given to one applicant or be split between two applicants. If further details are needed to assist in the selection process, we may contact you by e-mail, telephone or arrange a meeting.

Successful applicants will be expected to provide a summary expedition report and photos for use on our website.
