Overseas Expedition Grant
We delegated responsibility for Overseas Expedition
Grants in 2007 to the Welsh Sports
Association's Outdoor Pursuits Group.
They now handle the assessment of applications and day to day
administration of Grant Aid to support overseas expeditions.
The Great Outdoors
Successful applications have in the past traditionally come from
mountaineering, caving, cave diving, canoeing and paragliding. But
the Outdoor Pursuits Group of the Welsh Sports Association is happy
to consider applications from other outdoor activities, providing
the expedition is ground breaking and likely to enhance the
development of that activity.
All applications will be considered on merit, and after
consultation with the appropriate National Governing Body.
Who is eligible?
Priority will be given to Welsh based expeditions where the
majority of members are Welsh. Only Welsh team members will be
eligible for funding and must qualify on the grounds of birth,
parentage or be permanently resident in Wales for two or more
How much is available?
Grant will normally be limited to a contribution of up to 50%
towards the estimated cost of travel, U.K and abroad, essential
additional equipment and safety equipment.
How to apply
Applications for grant-aid to support the expedition must be
made on the appropriate application form in advance of the proposed
expedition date. Applications must be received by 31
December, prior to the financial year (1 April - 31 March)
in which the expedition is planned to take place.
