Since its inception in 1904, members of The Explorers Club have traversed the earth, the seas, the skies, and even the moon, on expeditions of exploration. First to the North Pole, first to the South Pole, first to the summit of Mount Everest, first to the deepest point in the ocean and first to the surface of the moon - all accomplished by Explorers Club Members. Notable members include Teddy Roosevelt, Neil Armstrong, Jane Goodall, Edmund Hillary, John Glenn, Sally Ride, and Bob Ballard.
The Explorers Club, a non-profit world leader in exploration, and Discovery Channel have partnered to create an Explorers Club Discovery Expedition Grant program to further advance significant exploration and scientific discovery. Meet the Grantees, the next frontier of explorers that have been awarded a grant to fund their expeditions.
