National Geographic Society: Seeking Proposals for Documenting Human Migrations Program

Deadline: 3 October 2018

The National Geographic Society is seeking proposals for a program entitled “Documenting Human Migrations” to support impactful projects that – through education or storytelling – seek to increase understanding of and acceptance of migrants and migrant communities.

These migrations are challenging social bonds and resource allocations across the world, motivating political agendas and potential backlash, but also creating new and dynamic multicultural communities. Types of human migrations include (but are not limited to) nomadic communities, refugees of all kinds, migrant labor, victims of human trafficking, and people exploring the planet and beyond.

Priorities

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

  • Document the causes and effects of one or more examples of present-day human migration;
  • Document the lives of present-day migrants, their journeys, and receiving communities.
  • Develop and test out classroom resources, curricula, or public outreach materials that aim to increase understanding of the migrant experience and acceptance of migrant communities.

Funding Information

  • Typical proposal requests should be less than $30,000; however, applicants may request up to $70,000. Successful applicants may use awarded funds over one or two years.
  • Up to 20 percent of the total can be used as a stipend for the applicant and/or team members.

How to Apply

Interested applicants can apply via given website.
