About this funder:



    AAC Research Grants support scientific endeavors in mountains and crags around the world. We fund projects that contribute vital knowledge of our climbing environment, enrich our understanding of global climber impacts and support and improve the health and sustainability of mountain environments and habitats. AAC Research Grants are powered by the Alliance for Sustainable Energy and supported by the following endowments:

    • Lara-Karena Bitenieks Kellogg Memorial Fund
    • Scott Fischer Memorial Fund
    • Arthur K. Gilkey Memorial Fund
    • Bedayn Research Fund


    Grant recipients’ research reflects AAC’s mission “to support our shared passion for climbing and respect for the places we climb” by contributing valuable information to our understanding of the world’s mountain ecosystems. Each grant recipient becomes an AAC Researcher, sharing their experiences, lessons learned, and findings with fellow climbers and the research community.

    You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
