National Geographic Young Explorers Grant

The Young Explorers Grants (YEG) offer opportunities to individuals ages 18-25 to pursue research, conservation, and exploration-related projects consistent with National Geographic's existing grant programs, including: the Committee for Research Exploration (CRE), the Expeditions Council (EC), and the Conservation Trust (CT).

Description

Young Explorers grants help cover field project costs for hard-working, passionate, creative individuals with great ideas. We focus on the disciplines we're known for, and also on emerging fields that matter most to understanding—and improving—the world we share. In addition, the YEG program recently teamed with the Luce Foundation to provide increased funding opportunities for fieldwork in 18 Northeast and Southeast Asian countries, including Brunei, Burma/Myanmar, Cambodia, China, East Timor, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Deadline

Pre-applications to the CRE should be submitted at least 10 months in advance of anticipated project dates, while at least eight months are required for the EC and seven months for the CT.

Full applications to the CRE should be submitted at least 8 months in advance of anticipated project dates, while at least 6 months are required for the CT and five months for the EC.
