Help us share the gift of gear with volunteers, charities, and friends.
Providing gear to those who need it most.
What we're about
We all remember our first summit. Our first deep breath while taking in the view. High fives with friends at the end of a trek. Our first blister. Our first campfire convos and stars free from city light pollution. These are the experiences that not only make memories, but make us who we are: explorers, adventurers, learners, protectors of the places we play and good citizens.
We want more people to make these memories: the sooner, the better.
We at Gear.com want people to enjoy the great outdoors - especially those with the greatest desire and the most need. We started the Gear.com scholarship fund to provide gear for few deserving winners. The scholarship will provide $500 worth of gear to 3 new winners each year. Applicants must be between 13 and 23 years old, have a compelling story, and tell us about the great things they will do outdoors if they win.
WHO Applicants must be between 13 and 23 years old, have a genuine passion for the outdoors, and a desire to pay it forward to the next generation of adventure seekers. Please note that at this time, we can only consider applicants who are US citizens, currently residing in the US.
WHEN Gear.com will choose three recipients each year who will be featured on the gear.com website, and application submissions for this year run from January 1st 2020 through until December 15th.
WHAT Gear.com will select three finalists who are guaranteed a $500 gear credit to purchase anything on Gear.com.
