National Geographic Society: Inviting applications for ‘grants’ for conservation, education, research, storytelling, and technology through its Committee for Research and Exploration.

Funding brief: The National Geographic Society awards grants for conservation, education, research, storytelling, and technology 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.

● Early Career Grant: An Early Career Grant application is a request for funding that offers less experienced individuals an opportunity to lead a project. Applicants are not required to have an advanced degree; those with a Ph.D. or equivalent work experience should apply for a Standard Grant, unless you can demonstrate that this grant will enable your first experience leading a project in your chosen field. If you have previously received an Early Career Grant or a Young Explorers Grant from National Geographic, you may submit a new proposal after you have closed your previous grant record. Applications should be submitted at least four months before the project start date. We accept applications on a rolling basis and usually make decisions within four months.

Grants are typically funded for less than US $5,000. They will consider requests for up to US $10,000.

If your project requires expedited funding due to unforeseen circumstances (e.g., volcanic eruption, sudden discovery, urgent threat), please email cre@ngs.org and explain why your request is urgent, what you plan to do, and how much support you need. Please note that receiving a last-minute notification that you are able to participate in a project is not grounds for expedited funding.

● Standard Grant: A Standard Grant application is a request for funding by an experienced project lead. The applicant and his or her team members are expected to demonstrate successful completion of similar projects with measurable and/or tangible results. If you have received a grant from National Geographic in the past, you may submit a new proposal after you have closed your previous grant record. Applications should be submitted at least six months before the project start date, but please check the website for relevant deadlines.

Grants are typically funded for less than US $30,000. They will consider requests for up to US $50,000.
