National Geographic funds storytelling proposals [Worldwide]

Posted on Oct 3, 2022 in Multimedia Journalism

Project leaders in the areas of conservation, education, research, storytelling and technology can apply for a grant.

National Geographic is accepting proposals for its Level I and Level II grants.

Possible works may include photography, filmmaking, cartography, journalism or digital media.

Projects selected for the Level I Grant receive funding up to US$20,000. Priority will be given to applicants who thoughtfully demonstrate how joining the Explorer Community will help to establish their career. 

Level II Grant recipients can receive up to US$100,000 for their projects. This grant is open to applicants who are established in their fields and reserved for select projects that push boundaries to achieve significant and tangible impact. 

National Geographic is also offering grants up to US$20,000 for freshwater projects. Eligible projects must focus on a water-related theme: interconnectedness, justice, and change and adaptation. 

The next deadline is Oct. 12.
