Research Grants


The Explorers Club St. Louis, Missouri

The Explorers Club offers a number of grants as part of its public service commitment. Applications are judged on the scientific and practical merits of the proposal, the competency of the applicant and the appropriateness of the budget.

You do not have to be a member to apply.
The Exploration Fund for graduate students and young scientists provides grants in support of exploration and field research for those who are just beginning their research careers.

The Youth Activity Fund for high school students and college undergraduates was established to help foster a new generation of explorers and to build a reservoir of young men and women dedicated to the advancement of scientific knowledge of the world.

The Scott Pearlman Field Awards for Science and Exploration for professionals in media and the arts provides grants to support professional documentation of exploration and field research. Grants are made to artists, writers, filmmakers, photographers, and journalists.

Special Grants are made for a number of select purposes each year, usually from the proceeds of special fund-raising events held by the Club headquarters in New York or by one of our chapters.
