The Explorers Club - Fjällräven Field Grant

The Explorers Club and Fjällräven share a common goal of understanding the world we live in by supporting and promoting a sustainable future through exploration and research. Furthermore, Fjällräven’s mission is to enable and inspire more people to spend time in nature by creating products that are of minimal impact to our environment and that will withstand a lifetime of use. 

This common vision has led to the creation of The Explorers Club - Fjällräven Field Grant “We Love Nature” grant which will aid in continued exploration and research that helps us better understand our environment, a changing climate, and how it is intertwined with wildlife and civilizations around the planet.

We are seeking young explorers who are working on sustainability, wildlife, and climate to educate and inspire the next generation of conservationists and explorers. The Explorers Club - Fjällräven Field Grant will award two recipients $5,000 each to aid in sending extraordinary young explorers into the field to conduct critically important research.

Proposals must include a focus of saving the preciousness of nature and how the recipient will make a lasting impact on younger up and coming generations who will continue to carry the message. Candidates should present their project proposal with a concise scientific rationale, provide an original approach, and show potential for discovering new findings that significantly impact the future of our environment.

Additionally, candidates should focus on providing an authentic application about who they are and why this project is important to them based on their passions. We want to see you as yourself, so be original and think outside the box when you submit your application.
