Leadership Through Adventure Fund Grants Now Open

Applications to fund your next grand adventure are now open thanks to the Dick & Pip Smith Leadership Through Adventure Fund.


Are you looking to fund your next grand adventure? Are you thinking of challenging yourself to lead an adventurous journey, scale a mountain, or lead a Patrol to explore the unknown in an epic experience? Do you need funding to support these goals?

The new Dick and Pip Smith Leadership Through Adventure Fund has been created following their incredibly generous donation of $1m to Scouts Australia. Over the next five years, this exciting fund will support adventurous activities that develop leadership skills and demonstrate responsible risk-taking, including:

  • Outdoor Adventurous journeys, 
  • Training courses for Outdoor Adventure Skills, 
  • and even international expeditions!

This significant support is open to individuals and Patrols of youth members at all Scouting levels and Branches, including metropolitan, regional, and remote communities. Successful applicants will need to co-contribute to the cost of their adventure and document a personal reflection to share with the Scouting movement. 

The first round of applications open on Thursday 1 September 2022 and close 9 October 2022. For more information, or to submit an application, email LTAF@scouts.com.au.
