National Geographic Grant Programs

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.


National Geographic grants aren’t just for explorers who are tracking lions, saving whales, or are deep in the Amazon.  The National Geographic Society is encouraging K-12 educators to apply for grants.  What are they looking for?  Creative teaching plans/strategies that:

  1. Address NatGeo goals/priorities
  2. Engaging ideas
  3. Evidence of capability
  4. Sound methodology
  5. Active, experiential, authentic learning
  6. Compelling story!

Can YOU become a National Geographic Grantee and become an emerging educational explorer? Absolutely.
