This inclusive fund creates opportunities for all Fort Lewis College students to participate in OP programs and trips, from single-day trips across the region to multi-day global adventures.
Each semester, students can apply for grants generated by the Give an Adventure Fund, which will, in turn, help them pay for trips listed on OP’s semester programming calendar. As part of OP’s Celebration of Adventure, students can apply for funding through the Give an Adventure Fund to support their dream adventure through a $1500 Seek Your Adventure Award.
Give an adventure
"The Seek Your Adventure Award created the opportunity for a couple of friends and me to finally pull off a trip that we had been talking about for years–and to do it right, taking the time to truly immerse ourselves in the landscape. It strengthened my sense of place here in the San Juan Mountains, and filled me with the connection, reflection, and unfiltered joy that can only come from a longer trip with excellent partners. This would not have been possible without the mentorship we received through Outdoor Pursuits, and the financial support provided by the Seek Your Adventure Award."
With a lifetime of adventure just off-campus, teams are encouraged to propose trips exploring those landscapes uniquely. Teams can receive up to $1,500 for their proposed trip.
The deadline for 2024 proposals is Sunday, March 31.
Proposals are reviewed by a group of Outdoor Pursuits professional staff, grant donors, and FLC alumni. Proposals are evaluated on the following criteria:
