In January 1992, Brian Meers and Patrick Grey were both killed in a tragic accident on Ben Nevis. Brian was a highly talented young Research Fellow in Physics and Astronomy and Patrick was a very promising young Research Student in Forensic Science, both at the University of Glasgow.

In memory of Brian and Patrick, the Meers-Grey trust wishes to offer a Travelling Scholarship for the benifit of staff and students of the Universities of Glasgow and Stirling. The objective of the Scholarship is to assist in the funding of expeditions to remote areas of the world for the primary purpose of mountaineering or other such adventurous outdoor pursuits.

Applications are invited for groups and/or individuals from September - November 2004 with a view to awarding thereafter. Application forms are available from http://www.gla.ac.uk/services/sport/meers/fund.htm.
