What is the National Geographic Young Explorers Program?
Young Explorers Grants (YEG) offer opportunities to individuals ages 18 to 25 to pursue research, conservation, and exploration-related projects consistent with National Geographic's existing grant programs. The YEG program recently teamed with the Luce Foundation to provide increased funding opportunities for fieldwork in 18 Northeast and Southeast Asian countries.
What are the benefits of being a National Geographic Young Explorer?
Young Explorers maybe eligible to receive grants to fund their research. Grants vary in amount depending on significance of the project, though most range between US $2,000 and $5,000 at the maximum.
