Preference will also be given to applicants who are residents or citizens of the country of fieldwork, as well as to projects with strong local capacity development components.

Projects should be research-focused but can integrate conservation, education, storytelling, or technology as a secondary component. They look to those areas of the planet where little is known about human origins, and they seek to invest in new ideas, projects, and explorers in and from these regions.
