National Geographic Society: Documenting Human MigrationsDeadline: July 10, 2018
Documenting Human Migrations aims to support impactful projects that – through education or storytelling – seek to increase understanding of and acceptance of migrants and migrant communities. Types of human migrations include (but are not limited to) nomadic communities, refugees of all kinds, migrant labor, victims of human trafficking, and people exploring the planet and beyond.
Priority will be given to projects that do one or more of the following through education or storytelling:
- Document the causes and effects of one or more examples of present-day human migration
- Document the lives of present-day migrants, their journeys, and receiving communities
- Develop and test out classroom resources, curricula, or public outreach materials that aim to increase understanding of the migrant experience and acceptance of migrant communities
Amount: Typical proposal requests should be less than $30,000; however, applicants may request up to $70,000. Up to 20 percent of the total can be used as a stipend for the applicant and/or team members.
Eligibility: Individuals who are at least 18 years old. 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.
