Funder: Australian Geographic Society
Grant Background: Each calendar year the Australian Geographic Society donates generously to maintain its programme of sponsorship of Australian adventurers, scientific and environmental research, and community projects.
There are two types of sponsorships available through the Australian Geographic Society:
- Project Sponsorships in four categories: science, environment, adventure, community.
- Nancy Bird Walton Sponsorship for Female Adventurers: The funding is awarded to an Australian woman planning to undertake an adventurous pursuit. The recipient of the sponsorship will be chosen by a panel made up of female adventurers, members of Nancy Bird Walton’s family and representatives of the Australian Geographic Society. All Australian female adventurers are eligible to apply for this grant.
