The National Geographic Society offers funding to less experienced individuals in order to give them the opportunity to lead a project.
These early career grants are for pre-doctoral researchers requiring around $5,000 to carry out their research project (applications of up to $10,000 will be considered).
The Society offers funding in all its themes under Project Focus Definitions. Funding can be obtained in Conservation (biological and cultural), Education, Storytelling (through, eg visual arts), Technology, and Research. The Research focus funds:
"high-quality scientific projects that aim to answer clear questions with measurable outcomes that advance a particular field of knowledge. Established projects should be driven by testable hypotheses. Exploratory projects to demonstrate important data baselines are also encouraged."
The next deadline for this call is 29 November 2017, quarterly thereafter.
