The Society’s Young Explorer grants helps young researchers break into the exploration, research, and conservation fields. The program is open to individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 and provides seed money to support research, conservation, and exploration-related projects in the areas in which the Society has long supported. Applicants can apply in one of the three following programs: Committee for Research and Exploration, the Conservation Trust, or the Expeditions Council. Applications are accepted from around the world. Researchers who are planning on working abroad should make serious efforts to include local collaborators on their team. Applicants are not required to have advance degrees, but a record of prior experience in the fields of research, conservation, or exploration should be submitted as it pertains to the proposed project. A pre-application form is available online and may be submitted at any time.
