Apply for the Fall 2022 CORE Grant!

Adventure Trips with the Center for Outdoor Recreation & Education (CORE) have been shown to decrease stress levels and increase a sense of belonging. The Department of Recreational Sports believes that these factors, in addition to physical activity, are key components of a successful student.

The CORE Grant aims to reduce financial barriers for UF students to participate in valuable Adventure Trip experiences. CORE awards approximately 6 $160 grants to UF students each Fall and Spring semester, as well as up to 2 $160 grants for the Outdoor Leadership Course. If you are interested in learning more about the OLC CORE Grant, then please visit the “How to become a TRiP Leader” tab on this website.
