National Geographic Young Explorers Grants

Applicants are not required to have advanced degrees. However, any relevant record or prior experience in the fields of research, conservation, or exploration should be submitted.

Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP)
A gateway to graduate education at CIC universities. The goal of the program is to increase the number of underrepresented students who pursue graduate study and research careers ( students from racial and ethnic minority groups and first-generation students are strongly encouraged to apply). Preference is given to students completing their junior year, although outstanding sophomores are considered for admission as well. Program helps prepare undergraduates for graduate study through intensive research experiences with faculty mentors and enrichment activities. Program is not for students pursuing professional degrees such as law, medical, and MBA degrees. Students who have completed an undergraduate degree are not eligible.
