National Geographic: Early Career GrantDeadline: April 22, 2020
National Geographic supports projects that are bold, innovative, and potentially transformative and have a primary focus in conservation, education, research, storytelling, or technology. Early Career Grants are designed to offer less experienced individuals an opportunity to lead a project.
Amount: Grants typically range from $5,000-$10,000.
Eligibility: Individuals who are at least 18 years of age. 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. Organizations can also apply for grants, but the person within the organization who will lead the project—not the institution—should be the applicant. Giving is on an international basis.
