The National Geographic Society has been investing in bold people and transformative ideas since we awarded our first grant in 1890.
As the Society enters a strategic planning process — and in recognition of the challenges of conducting fieldwork during the COVID-19 pandemic — we have decided to pause most of our grantmaking opportunities following the October 21 deadline.
This will give us the opportunity to think strategically about how our grantmaking can create the greatest impact in illuminating and protecting the wonder of our world, in alignment with the Society’s mission and vision.
We look forward to continuing our legacy by funding a diverse community of changemakers from around the world.
We will continue to accept applications for our COVID-19 Remote Learning Emergency Fund for Educators and our COVID-19 Emergency Fund for Journalists (through Nov. 15). Please see below for more information.
