National Geographic Society: Inviting Applications for award for research, conservation, education, and storytelling through its Committee for Research and Exploration.

Donor Name: National Geographic Society
Fund name: Early Career Grant, Standard Grant, Expedited Grant

Funding brief: The National Geographic Society awards grants for research, conservation, education, and storytelling through its Committee for Research and Exploration. All proposed projects must be novel and exploratory, and be of broad interest. National Geographic Society grant-funded projects should be bold, innovative, and transformative.

Project Focus:
● 
Research
● Conservation
● Education
● Storytelling
● Technology

Three lenses:
● 
The Human Journey: The Human Journey supports projects that explore and document the human experience through time to preserve and celebrate our shared heritage. The Human Journey funds impact-oriented projects within the fields of anthropology, archaeology, paleoanthropology, psychology, human health, and human geography. They are particularly interested in the themes of human migration (i.e., the causes and effects of human population movement), human adaptation (i.e., how societies adjust to and mitigate environmental changes), and human diversity (i.e., the cultural, linguistic, and genetic diversity of our species). They are also interested in supporting innovations in technology, education, mapping, and storytelling related to these themes, particularly data visualization, high-tech approaches, cultural heritage preservation, educational outreach, and curricula development. Please note, however, that They do not provide financial support for the reconstruction or restoration of archaeological sites or for architectural conservation.

● Wildlife and Wild Places: Wildlife and Wild Places supports projects that explore and document the Earth’s biodiversity to better understand and conserve species, habitats, processes, and ecosystems (marine and terrestrial). Wildlife and Wild Places funds impact-oriented projects within the fields of biology, ecology, and conservation. They are particularly interested in the themes of biodiversity in human-altered environments (including human-wildlife conflict and mitigation, urban ecology, zoonotic diseases), the effects of climate change on biodiversity (including science- and policy-oriented solutions), the exploitation of natural resources (including bushmeat, legal but unsustainable harvesting, wildlife crime), landscape connectivity and habitat corridors (including animal migrations), and the science of restoration (i.e., ecosystem restoration at all scales). They are also interested in supporting innovations in technology, education, mapping, and storytelling related to these themes, particularly data visualization, high-tech approaches, educational outreach, and curricula development.

● Our Changing Planet: Our Changing Planet supports projects that explore and document Earth and ocean systems in the present, past, and future to better understand and protect the evolving environment. Our Changing Planet funds impact-oriented projects within the fields of geology, geochemistry, physical geography, marine ecology, oceanography, paleontology, and observational astronomy. They are particularly interested in the themes of ocean research and conservation (including reef processes, marine ecology and management, and sea-level change), disasters associated with natural hazards (including volcanoes, earthquakes, and landslides), environmental change (including records of past climates, glacial retreat, pollution, and remediation), and the history of our planet (including plate tectonics, paleobotany, mass-extinction events, and planetary analog science). They are also interested in supporting innovations in technology, education, mapping, and storytelling related to these themes, particularly data visualization, high-tech approaches, educational outreach, and curricula development.

Funding Types:
● 
Early Career Grant: An Early Career Grant application is a request for funding that offers individuals their first opportunity to lead their own project. The applicant is not required to have an advanced degree. However, a record of prior experience in his or her field is expected. An applicant is eligible to receive only one Early Career Grant. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and decisions are usually made within two months of application submission.

● Standard Grant: A Standard Grant application is a request for funding that does not have the urgent time constraints of an Expedited Grant application (see below). The applicant and his or her team members are expected to have clear records of successful completion of similar projects with measurable and/or tangible results. Applications should be submitted at least six months before the project start date.

● Expedited Grant: An Expedited Grant application is a rare request for funding that requires a rapid response due to exceptional circumstances. The applicant will be asked to describe the need for urgency (e.g., natural disaster, imminent demolition or destruction of an area, time-sensitive event) in the application. Project start dates are usually less than one month from the time of proposal submission. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and decisions are made as quickly as possible.

Deadline:
