If you search the definition of the word 'BEARD' you'll
expect the obvious noun:
"a growth of hair on the chin and lower cheeks of a man's face"
What you may not know is that 'BEARD' is also a verb:
"to boldly confront or challenge"
I want to be able to help you boldly confront or challenge one of your dreams. This is your first step to have an adventure of your very own. The scholarship will be awarded to someone who thinks outside the box, has a great idea and shows a real passion for adventure.
The Sean Conway #FindYourBeard Scholarship is a £1000 grant for someone (or a group to share) to go off and have their very own adventure. The planned adventure cant cost more than £1000 in total and applicants can apply for any amount from £10-£1000. A detailed budget needs to be shown.
Anyone who has a dream for an adventure but needs a helping hand to make it happen. There is no age limit. It’s never too late to start an adventure.
We all need to live more adventurously. Adventure isn't all about climbing mountains or rowing oceans. Adventure, in its purest form, is simply a way of thinking! I want to be able to help people think more adventurously.
The Scholarship deadline is on the
6th March 2016
and the proposed adventure needs to be completed before the end of 2016.
