National Geographic Conservation Trust Offers Funding to Preserve Earth’s Resources

Deadline: Open

The objective of the National Geographic Conservation Trust is to support conservation activities around the world as they fit within the mission of the National Geographic Society.

The trust supports projects that contribute significantly to the preservation and sustainable use of the Earth’s biological, cultural, and historical resources and seeks to identify cutting-edge programs that might be overlooked due to inherent risks associated with new investigators and fields. Applicants are not expected to have advanced degrees (Ph.D. or equivalent). However, they must be able to provide a record of prior research or conservation action as it pertains to the proposed project. Funding is not restricted to U.S. citizens. Researchers planning work in foreign countries should include at least one local collaborator as part of their research team.

Grant amounts vary, with most ranging between $15,000 and $20,000. As National Geographic Society funds are intended to function as complementary support, the trust strongly encourages applicants to seek additional, concurrent funding from other funding agencies.

The trust accepts pre-applications throughout the year, but they should be submitted at least eight months prior to anticipated field dates. See the trust’s Web site for complete funding guidelines and application information.
