The National Geographic Society Grants

Grant Application Deadline: 
Wednesday, January 9, 2019

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. 

We do not usually consider applications that support strictly laboratory or collections work. Grants are awarded on the basis of merit and exist independent of the Society's other divisions. Please note that this is a highly competitive grant program; we receive many more applications than we are able to fund.

We are currently accepting applications for all grant types until January 9, 2019.

Project start dates should be a minimum of six months after the submission deadline to ensure any awarded funds are received in time. Learn more about our review process and timelines.
