For nearly 50 years, Exodus has been dedicated to exploring this amazing planet we all share, supporting the communities we visit, and protecting the environments we travel to. We have a passion for inspiring adventure, and a dedication to exploration for the better of people, places, and our planet, which is why we’re so thrilled to partner with The Explorers Club, the industry leader in the scientific exploration of sea, land, air, and space, to launch a new Exodus Exploration Without Boundaries Grant program.
The Exodus Exploration Without Boundaries Grants will help fund projects that advance the global understanding of the social and natural world through cultural, scientific, and conservation fieldwork, led by explorers who may have taken alternative routes to acquire the skills necessary to conduct their research. We believe that explorers are extraordinary individuals who set themselves apart in the pursuit of knowledge. We also believe that explorers come from all backgrounds and walks of life.
It is our belief that we must remember that the ability to explore and travel is a privilege, which is not accessible to everyone. We are thrilled to introduce this grant, alongside our partners at The Explorers Club, to help provide additional access to resources to fund future expeditions and projects.
“The club’s mission is to encourage exploration without limitations,” says 45th president of The Explorers Club, Richard Garriott. “These Exodus grants will support passionate explorers pursuing their work and help provide them with the funding necessary for the advancement of science, and to further our understanding of the world.”
Since 1904, The Explorers Club has been promoting exploration and field study and has served as the foremost meeting place for explorers across the globe. The Explorers Club provides expedition resources including funding, online information, and member-to-member consultation. Most importantly, it provides fellowship with other members, a global network of expertise, experience, technology, industry, and support. The Club’s members have been responsible for an illustrious series of famous firsts: first to the North Pole, first to the South Pole, first to the summit of Mount Everest, first to the deepest point in the ocean, first to the surface of the moon. Jane Goodall, Buzz Aldrin, Jacques Cousteau, Matthew Henson, Tenzing Norgay, Sally Ride, and Sylvia Earle are just a few of the past and present fellows leading the way in scientific exploration and discovery.
As our grant recipients head out in the name of exploration, they’ll be taking us along for the ride virtually through photos, videos, and blog posts. Stay tuned for new and inspiring adventures from the team!
