Funder: National Geographic
Grant Background: 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 their three focus areas.
They do not usually consider applications that support strictly laboratory or collections work. Grants are awarded on the basis of merit and exist independent of the Society’s other divisions.
