National Geographic Society: Seeking Proposals for ‘Uncovering Human Origins in Asia and Africa’

Deadline: 3 October 2018

The National Geographic Society is accepting proposals for its “Uncovering Human Origins in Asia and Africa” to encourage further investigation of hominid evolution in Africa and Asia, with preference given to projects in relatively unexplored parts of those continents.

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. All applications should include a clear review of the state of knowledge about human origins in the region and, if applicable, a plan for evaluating the success of the proposed capacity development activities (e.g., field school).

Priorities

Priority will be given to projects that aim to do one or more of the following:

  • Discover or explore new paleoanthropological fossil sites in Africa or Asia, particularly those in Central and West Africa and those in East, Southeast, South, and Central Asia
  • Design or test new methodologies for discovering or exploring paleoanthropological sites in Africa or Asia
  • Develop local capacity in human origins exploration in Africa or Asia

Funding Information

  • Typical proposals should request less than $30,000; however, applicants may request up to $50,000 if they are running a field school for students from the region.
  • Successful applicants should use awarded funds within one year.

How to Apply

Applicants can apply via given website.
