Applications Invited for Early Career Grants to lead a project

Applications Invited for Early Career Grants to lead a project

Organization: National Geographic

Apply By: 15 Jan 2020

Grant Amount: 10000 USD

National Geographic is the official magazine of the National Geographic Society.  They primarily contain articles about science, geography, history, and world culture.

Early Career Grant:

Early Career Grants are designed to offer less experienced individuals an opportunity to lead a project.

Grant projects last one calendar year or less. If you apply for more than one year of funding, your proposal will be sent back to you to revise and resubmit for the next deadline. Projects are typically funded for US $5,000 and cannot exceed US $10,000.

There is no maximum age limit for Early Career Grant applicants. However, applicants must be at least 18 years old at the time of application submission. 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 and should apply for an Exploration Grant instead.

If you have previously received an Early Career Grant or a Young Explorers Grant from National Geographic, you may submit a new proposal after you have closed your previous grant record.

Visit our How to Apply section to learn more about eligibility requirements and how to prepare your proposal. Early Career Grant applicants must also submit a two-minute video that will be used to help evaluate the proposal. You may speak in your primary language, but if that is not English, you MUST add English subtitles or attach an English video transcript.

Eligibility criteria:

Application

  • All applications must be submitted through our online application system. They do not accept mailed or emailed applications. All application materials must be submitted in English.
  • Early Career Grant and Exploration Grant projects last one year or less. Project start dates should be a minimum of six months after the submission deadline to ensure any awarded funds are received in time. See the Grant Opportunities page for information about exact deadlines.

Project Leadership

  • You may submit a proposal as the project leader for only one project at a time. You must submit a final report and media from any previous grants for which you were the leader before applying to lead a new project.
  • Organizations can apply for grants, but the person within the organization who will lead the project—not the institution—should be the applicant and will be expected to meet the requirements of the grant.
  • Students should not submit in their advisor’s name. The individual responsible for carrying out the project should apply and write the application.

The next deadline is January 15, 2020. Please refer to individual opportunities for details.

All applications received by 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time on the deadline will be reviewed, and decisions announced 4 months later.
