National Geographic Society: Early-Career Grants, Exploration Grants, and Requests for Proposals

All proposed National Geographic Society 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 the Society’s three focus areas. Grants are offered across the following programs.

Early Career Grants

Early Career Grants are designed to offer less experienced individuals an opportunity to lead a project.

  • Funding: Projects are funded at up to US $10,000 (approx AUD $14,000).
  • Duration: Grant projects last one calendar year or less
  • Eligibility: There is no maximum age limit for Early Career Grant applicants. However, applicants must be at least 18 years old at the time of application submission. 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.
  • Refer to the eligibility section of the National Geographic’s website for more details.
