The National Geographic Society is offering educators grants to support projects that aim to teach people about the world and how it works, empowering them to make it a better place.

Funded projects must align with one of the society’s three focus lenses: the human journey, wildlife and wild places, and our changing planet. These lenses are described in more detail on the grants website.

National Geographic is looking for educators who have new ideas for effective strategies in teaching and learning at any age level, with any audience and in any location. The grants are designed to support educators in formal and informal settings, in community education and outreach, and educator professional development.

Grants will be awarded on a quarterly basis. The upcoming submission deadline is July 1 for decisions by Nov. 30.
