Requests for Proposals: Equity and the Natural World

Offered by National Geographic

Ensuring our planet is healthy is one of the most critical challenges we face today. If left unchecked, our growing footprint on the Earth will leave it uninhabitable for human life. This is why environmental reporting has become more important than ever before.

We need your help. We want to bring hidden stories to the surface and to understand in rich detail those who have been given far too little consideration in the environmental movement. We want to tell stories that illuminate the policies and actions that have brought our global community to an unprecedented moment on the precipice of planetary climate disaster—and how frontline communities will feel the consequences much more than wealthy ones.

You may submit a proposal as the project leader for only one project at a time. You must submit a final report and media from any previous grants for which you were the leader before applying to lead a new project.

Organizations can apply for grants, but the person within the organization who will lead the project—not the institution—should be the applicant and will be expected to meet the requirements of the grant.

Students should not submit in their advisor’s name. The individual responsible for carrying out the project should apply and write the application.

All applicants must be at least 18 years old at the time they submit an application. There is no upper age limit for Early Career Grants. However, if you have more than five years of full-time, professional experience in the field of your project focus, you do not qualify for an Early Career Grant. Time in graduate school does not count toward this experience limit. Visit our Grant Opportunities page for more information about grant types.

We encourage applications from around the world. If you are planning to work outside of your home country or community, you must include the name and contact information for at least one local collaborator as a project team member in the application. Please note that the National Geographic Society does not assist with visas. Learn more about our regional offices and programs.
