The Arctic Club seeks to promote and support interesting, innovative and adventurous expeditions in the Arctic, particularly for young people. Grants are awarded annually from the Arctic Club Award Fund, held within the Gino Watkins Memorial Fund (Charity 274471), and administered by the Committee of Fund Managers (which includes Arctic Club members). Applications for an award must be made to the Gino Watkins Memorial Fund by 31 January each year. Each year, one or more expeditions are given an Arctic Club Award and receive a combined grant from both the Gino Watkins Memorial Fund and the Arctic Club Award Fund. Grants to successful applicants are announced in March. Members of these expeditions are our guests at the next Arctic Club Dinner.
Members and organisations with Arctic interests are encouraged to make donations to the Arctic Club Award Fund. If you would like to make a donation (which can include Gift Aid), please contact the Hon.Secretary. See the Gino Watkins Memorial Fund for further information, including the latest accounts for the Arctic Club Award (a Restricted Income Fund within the GWMF accounts).
