For nearly 50 years, Exodus Travels has been dedicated to exploring this amazing planet we all share, supporting the communities we visit, and protecting the environments we travel to. We have a passion for inspiring adventure, and a dedication to exploration for the better of people, places, and our planet, which is why we’re so thrilled to partner with The Explorers Club, the industry leader in the scientific exploration of sea, land, air, and space, to launch a new Exodus Exploration Without Boundaries Grant program.
The Exodus Exploration Without Boundaries Grants will help fund projects that advance the global understanding of the social and natural world through cultural, scientific, and conservation fieldwork, led by explorers who may have taken alternative routes to acquire the skills necessary to conduct their research. We believe that explorers are extraordinary individuals who set themselves apart in the pursuit of knowledge. We also believe that explorers come from all backgrounds and walks of life.

THE ROYAL CANADIAN GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY
Exploration and discovery are key pillars of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS). It should not be surprising that many Explorers Club Canadian Chapter members are also proud Fellows of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society's College of Fellows.
RCGS Fellows are individuals who have distinguished themselves by directly contributing to scientific knowledge in the field of geography, geographical exploration, or allied sciences (i.e., archaeology, atmospheric sciences, marine biology, zoology, etc.). Such accomplishments usually are evidenced by published books, scientific publications or major mainstream media coverage documenting fieldwork or exploration. Fellows may also be individuals who have distinguished themselves in teaching, academia, community service and the arts and who have received major awards/official recognition, as well as individuals in the public sector, military, business, and the professions who are seen as leaders in their respective fields.
Only members of the RCGS College of Fellows can submit nominations. If you are an RCGS Fellow and happen to know anyone in Canada who satisfies these credentials, nominate them to be an RCGS Fellow.
