SUBJECT: National Geographic Young Explorers Grant Opportunity for CU-Boulder Students
Dear University Faculty and Staff:
This October, University of Colorado-Boulder students will have a unique
opportunity to meet with National Geographic representatives, learn valuable
grant-writing skills and apply for a Young Explorers Grant to fund their own
fieldwork through National Geographic.
In partnership with the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History,
National Geographic will be hosting a public lecture and a Young Explorers
Grant Workshop for the University of Colorado and the larger Boulder
community on October 29th and 30th.
On Friday, October 29th at 7:00PM in the Glenn Miller Ballrooms in the
University Memorial Center, National Geographic and the University of
Colorado Museum of Natural History have organized a free evening lecture.
This event will be hosted by Dr. John Francis, Vice President of Research,
Conservation, and Exploration at National Geographic and will feature:
Jimmy Chin; alpinist, adventurer, and National Geographic Emerging Explorer
and James Balog; Internationally acclaimed nature and outdoor photographer.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
On Saturday, October 30th, National Geographic and the University of
Colorado Museum of Natural History will be hosting a Young Explorers Grants
Workshop open to those ages 18-25. The morning session on Saturday will
cover the basics of National Geographic as an organization, the basics of
writing a successful grant proposal (not just for National Geographic),
short talks by past grant recipients and a panel discussion where students
can ask grant-related questions. In the afternoon we will have break-out
sessions, during which students will be able to speak to National Geographic
staff in a smaller group setting, pitch their project ideas and receive
valuable feedback. Breakfast and lunch will be available free to attendees
during the Saturday workshop. The Young Explorers Grants Workshop is free
but registration is required. Please visit National Geographic's website for
more information and to register:
The University of Colorado Museum of Natural History would like your help in
order to raise awareness for our students. Please help us by telling your
students about this exciting opportunity. National Geographic is interested
in funding a very wide breadth of projects, from biology and anthropology to
writing and photography.
