The Explorers Club is proud of its history but also looks toward the future by recognizing the importance of new ideas and avenues of exploration. The Club is deeply committed to supporting the fieldwork of serious researchers and, as part of its public service commitment, offers exploration grants in the following categories.

High School Students and College Undergraduates
The goal of this grant category is to foster a new generation of explorers dedicated to the advancement of the scientific knowledge of our world. The average award is approximately $1,500.

Graduate Students and Immediate Post-Doc
This category of grant supports exploration and field research for those who are just beginning their research careers. The average award is approximately $2,500.

For 2020 two categories of grants will be available, The Explorers Club – OceanX grants for research involving the ocean and The Explorers Club – Mamont Scholars grants for all categories of field science.

Awards for both categories range from $500 to $5,000. We recommend keeping your budget realistic. Only a few grants may be awarded at the $5,000 level.
