Ritt Kellogg Growth Grants are designed to give students the opportunity to grow personally and professionally within the outdoor education world. Through these supported events, conferences, and summits, the RKMF Advisory Committee hopes to diversify who interacts with the outdoors and how they interact with outdoor spaces.
Potential opportunities include events like Color the Crag, LGBTQ Outdoors Summit, AORE, Women's Climbing Festival, and workshops with scholars like Robin DiAngelo and Carolyn Finney. They are also trips and skills clinics through groups like the Venture Out Project, Queer Nature and Native Women's Wilderness.
Growth Grants will cover 75%-100% of the cost of the program along with transportation to and from the experience, and lodging during the experience, up to $1,000 total. The percentage of the proposal costs that will be covered will vary based on student financial need.
If you have any questions on applying for a RKMF Growth Grant please contact the RKMF Coordinator, Kate Macklin, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications for Growth Grants are available now on Summit, and are approved on a rolling basis.
