Southeast Region Live Your Dream Grant Winners Announced for 2012

Posted on: July 12th, 2012 by lhummel

Congratulations to our grant-winning teams from the Southeast Region! The five teams from the Southeast Region plan trips to California, the Tetons, Smith Rock, New Hampshire, West Virginia, and Kentucky with goals of testing themselves on classic routes, climbing alpine rock with family members, and reconnecting with friends over classic Sierra granite. 

Community Programs Director John Bragg said, via email, “ We received so many inspiring applications, it was quite difficult to narrow them down to the final grant winners. The committee looked for the applications that distinguished themselves from the others. In the end, the winners held two main things in common: their proposed projects demonstrated both a clear progression in their personal climbing experiences, and that they would help them attain long-held climbing dreams.”

We’ll be getting their trip reports—and posting them on americanalpineclub.org—when they get back from their expeditions, but check out the press release now, and start dreaming for your own trips!

The purpose of the Southeast Region “Live Your Dream” Grant is to fund individuals or small teams in pursuit of their personal climbing dreams. The emphasis of the grant is on projects that have significant positive impact on grantees’ progressions as climbers, as opposed to cutting-edge or exploratory objectives. We seek to support climbers from a range of ages and experience levels, as well as a range of climbing disciplines (sport climbing, bouldering, traditional rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, etc.). Climbers from Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida are eligible for the Southeast Region grant.
