National Geographic Society

The National Geographic Society is a nonprofit scientific and educational organization dedicated to exploring our planet, protecting wildlife and habitats, and helping assure that students in K-12 are geographically literate. Since 1888, National Geographic has awarded grants that have sent thousands of the world’s greatest explorers on groundbreaking journeys of discovery. The findings and imagery they brought back have educated us, inspired us and changed the world.

National Geographic has established a nonprofit foundation, the National Geographic Foundation for Science and Exploration in Asia, that provides grants to scientists, conservationists and explorers from the region who are doing groundbreaking work in their fields and exploring solutions that benefit our planet. The Science and Exploration Asia office is based in Seoul, Korea and allows National Geographic and its philanthropic partners to identify up-and-coming leaders in their fields and provide local funding for their work. Residents of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam are eligible to receive grants, and the grants cover fieldwork performed in any part of the globe.
