Applications Open for 2022 Expedition Funding

The MEF are now accepting funding applications for their January 31st 2022 deadline - supporting expeditions from mid-April to November 2022.

We're delighted to be offering funding once again for expeditions planned from mid-April to November 2022.

We're very aware the global situation remains fluid around the Covid-19 pandemic. Funding will be considered for expeditions where:

  • The FCO and WHO advice allows leisure travel to the destination country.
  • That the destination country‚Äôs borders are fully open to tourists, and that internal travel restrictions have been lifted.
  • That the expedition is fully and properly insured with a suitable insurance policy from a recognised insurer.
  • Any expedition must follow the host country's regulations regarding Covid-19 and their vaccination policies.

We would like to remind all prospective applicants, that we are utilising a new application form that can be downloaded here. Any applications made using out-of-date forms will not be accepted and you will be asked to re-submit your application, so please make sure that you have the correct copy.

We have also updated our guidelines for all expeditions, and agreed new criteria by which we will be judging applications for scientific research. These have been introduced to ensure that the MEF meets its centrally stated objective to encourage and support expeditions for exploration and research in the mountain areas of the World.
