Grants for Participatory Science (National Geographic)

No deadline. This call is permanently open.

National Geographic seeks to support participatory science through the development or innovative use of data-driven, technology-powered tools that will increase the understanding, preservation, and protection of our planet. Applicants should design and/or implement tools that support citizen science work, particularly data collection or data analysis, in ways that create learning experiences for citizen scientists, including students.

Priority will be given to research, education, and technology projects that create and execute new digital applications, transform existing applications and products, or use current technologies to do one or more of the following:

  • Teach students and other citizen scientists about the planet using experiential, crowdsourced technology
  • Encourage students and other citizen scientists who engage with these technologies and projects to build the attitudes, skills, and knowledge necessary to become stewards of the planet and contribute to solving real-world issues
  • Generate data and/or develop open-source technologies that contribute to scientific inquiry and advance our understanding of the planet

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.

Applicants may request up to $30,000. Successful applicants may use awarded funds over one or two years.

No deadline. This call is permanently open.
