2. All applicants must be British citizens (British Nationality Act 1981), and resident in the UK.
3. Anyone aged 18 and above at interview, and in any occupation can apply.

5. Applications are only considered for individual projects although expedition leaders may also apply under the Adventure, Exploration & Leaders of Expeditions category.
6. Applicants must demonstrate that their project will bring real benefit to others in their community and in so doing to the UK.
