The objective of the Explorers Club - Eddie Bauer grants are to support field research activities around the world in keeping with the mission of The Explorers Club and the untamable spirit of adventure, core to the Eddie Bauer brand.

Researchers planning work in foreign countries should include at least one local collaborator as part of their research teams.

Grant Limits
The Explorers Club - Eddie Bauer Youth Grant and The Explorers Club - Eddie Bauer Grant for Expeditions maximum allocation is $25,000 for each grant. In certain cases where more than one grant application is voted by the Grant Committee as deserving of receiving funding, the total grant allocation of $25,000 may be divided between multiple deserving applications (up to three maximum per grant).
