Do you have a story to tell about people, the environment, or the very nature of our planet? You could be the next National Geographic Society Explorer with a worldwide focus and generous grant this is the chance to tell your story.

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 exploration, scientific research, conservation, education, and storytelling. 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.
