The National Geographic Society pushes the boundaries of exploration to further understanding of our planet and empower the global community to generate solutions for a healthier and more sustainable future.
We invest in bold people and transformative ideas in the fields of conservation, education, research, storytelling, and technology. Our goal is to identify, cultivate, and develop the world-changers of today and tomorrow. Our grant recipients are—and have always been—the heart and soul of what we do.
When we award a grant, we're not just funding a project. We are also inviting a scientist, conservationist, educator, or storyteller to join a passionate community of like-minded, global leaders. These leaders are National Geographic Explorers.
