The Leakey Foundation provides grants to foster research into human origins.
The Foundation exclusively funds research related specifically to human origins, including:
- primate behaviour, and
- studies of modern hunter-gatherer groups.
Grants to doctoral students are in the USD $3,000 to $15,000 range (approx AUD $4,000 – $20,000). Larger grants, especially to senior scientists and post-doctoral students, may be funded up to USD $25,000 (approx AUD $33,000). Priority of funding is commonly given to exploratory phases of promising new research projects that meet the stated purpose of the Foundation.
Advanced doctoral students (advanced to candidacy – all but dissertation) and established scientists are eligible for general research grants.
There are no citizenship restrictions. However, all applications must be in English.
