National Geographic Supports Local Explorers in Asia

MONday - 10/08/2015 14:54
Since 1888, National Geographic has awarded grants that have sent thousands of the world’s greatest explorers on groundbreaking journeys of discovery. The findings and imagery they brought back have educated us, inspired us and changed the world.
The National Geographic Foundation for Science and Exploration - Asia supports scientists, conservationists and explorers throughout Asia through its regional, peer-reviewed grant program.

Since its founding, National Geographic has supported more than 11,000 expeditions around the world, ranging from Jane Goodall’s groundbreaking study of chimpanzees to Albert Lin's work merging remote exploration with crowd-sourced citizen science to locate the tomb of Genghis Khan. By supporting a wide array of projects at the cutting edge of technology and research, National Geographic is making pioneering breakthroughs and extraordinary discoveries that create inspiring stories.

The grant program in Asia is open to residents of Brunei, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor Leste, and Vietnam to work anywhere in the world. Applications can be submitted in three categories: Research, Conservation, and Exploration.

Young Explorers Grants (YEG) offer opportunities to individuals ages 18 to 25 to pursue research, conservation, and exploration-related projects consistent with National Geographic's existing grant programs, including: the Committee for Research and Exploration (CRE), the Expeditions Council (EC), and the Conservation Trust (CT). In addition, the YEG program recently teamed with the Luce Foundation to provide increased funding opportunities for fieldwork in 18 Northeast and Southeast Asian countries, including Brunei, Burma/Myanmar, Cambodia, China, East Timor, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
