Early Career Grant
The National Geographic Society currently offers grant applications for Early Career Grants which are designed to offer less experienced individuals an opportunity to lead a project.
All proposed projects should be bold, innovative, and potentially transformative and have a primary focus on conservation, education, research, storytelling, or technology. Projects should also align with one of these three focus areas.
Opportunity Focus Areas:
ALL WORLD COUNTRIES
One year or less.
- You may submit a proposal as the project leader for only one project at a time. You must submit a final report and media from any previous grants for which you were the leader before applying to lead a new project.
- Organizations can apply for grants, but the person within the organization who will lead the project—not the institution—should be the applicant and will be expected to meet the requirements of the grant.
- All applicants must be at least 18 years old at the time they submit an application. There is no upper age limit.
- Applicants from around the world are encouraged to apply. At this time, National Geographic can not fund work in North Korea, Iran, Syria, and Crimea due to U.S. legal restrictions concerning projects in these countries.
- Project start dates should be a minimum of six months after the submission deadline to ensure any awarded funds are received in time.
- Grant projects last one calendar year or less. If you apply for more than one year of funding, your proposal will be sent back to you to revise and resubmit for the next deadline.
- Applicants are not required to have an advanced degree.
- Anyone with more than five years of professional experience in the field of their project focus does not qualify for an Early Career Grant and should apply for an Exploration Grant instead.
- Projects are funded for between US $5,000 and US $10,000.
