OVERVIEW

The National Geographic Society currently offers three types of grant applications—Early Career, Exploration, and Requests for Proposals. All proposed projects should be bold, innovative, and potentially transformative and have a primary focus in conservation, education, research, storytelling, or technology. Projects should also align to one of our three focus areas: Wildlife, Human Journey, and Changing Planet.


FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

Early Career Grants are designed to offer less experienced individuals an opportunity to lead a project. Grants are typically funded for US $5,000 and cannot exceed US $10,000.

An Exploration Grant application is a request for funding by an experienced project leader in the areas of conservation, education, research, storytelling, and technology. Grants are typically funded for between US $10,000 and US $30,000.

Applicants may propose projects focused in conservation, education, research, storytelling, or technology in response to the special Requests for Proposals (RFPs) listed below.
