National Geographic Society Grant Program 2019 – Applications are open for the National Geographic Society Grant Program 2019. The National Geographic Society currently offers three types of grant applications—Early Career, Exploration, and Requests for Proposals.

National Geographic Society Grant Program 2019.

Early Career Grants are designed to offer less experienced individuals an opportunity to lead a project. Grant projects last one calendar year or less. 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. Grant projects last one calendar year or less.

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 National Geographic Society’s three focus areas.
