Dr Alexander Kellam (MBBS 1962), who is a member of the Captain Scott Society, and he wantsto give SGUL students the opportunity to apply for the Spirit of Adventure award, particularly because of our historical connection to Scott via Edward Wilson.

The Awards are granted to assist individuals or Groups to undertake adventurous expeditions and endeavours.
The Spirit of Adventure Award - £2,500.
This is awarded to the individual or Group that best exemplifies Captain Scott's 'Spirit of Adventure'. In particular, the Society is looking for adventurous 'firsts'. These could include the scaling of unclimbed peaks, navigational firsts, sporting firsts or expeditionary firsts of any kind. Applicants should also take into account the scientific objectives of Scott's expeditions. The Society reserves the right to vary the distribution of this Award.
The Award is usually presented at the Society's Annual Dinner to which the successful applicant (or representative of a Group) is invited as a guest of the Society. The Dinner is always held on the 13th June.
It is a condition of the Award that the successful applicant(s) gives a presentation to the Society on completion of the attempt. This normally takes place at the Society's Annual General Meeting during April or May of each year.
