Committee for Research and Exploration Grant (for Scientific Field Research and Exploration)

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 our three focus areas. 

  • Early Career Grants: Early Career Grants are designed to offer less experienced individuals an opportunity to lead a project. Grants are typically funded for between US $5,000 and US $10,000.
  • Exploration Grants: An Exploration Grant application is a request for funding by an experienced project leader in the areas of conservation, education, research, storytelling, and technology. 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. Grants are typically funded for between US $10,000 and US $30,000.
