In 2015, the National Geographic Society established the National Geographic Foundation for Science and Exploration – Asia to increase our ability to support scientists, conservationists, educators, storytellers, and technologists throughout the region. While we accept applicants from around the world, we encourage residents from the following countries to apply: Brunei, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam.
We use one application form for all grant types and regions. Please read more about grant application requirements, eligibility, and program priorities on our main grant page before applying.
National Geographic Society has expanded its commitment to Asia with a philanthropic gift from C program to establish a non-profit foundation based in Seoul since 2015. We also seek generous contributions and donations to continuously support scientists and explorers in Asia. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
