National Geographic Early Career Grant

Application Deadline:  October 25, 2017

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.

National Geographic welcomes applications from around the world, and specifically encourages applicants from outside the United States to apply. Applicants planning to work outside of their home country should include at least one local collaborator on their team. The Committee will 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.

Early Career Grant applicants must be at least 18 years old at the time of application submission. Applicants must not yet hold a Ph.D., an equivalent degree, or equivalent work experience to qualify for an Early Career Grant.
