While projects in all research areas are eligible, the National Geographic Society seeks storytellers (writers, photographers, filmmakers and other media) and researchers with a talent for and interest in storytelling.

This application cycle, projects focused on Oceans and Water, with a particular interest in plastics, community coastal and fishery management and biodiversity, are preferred.

Project proposals which may be on other topics of interest to National Geographic (including but not limited to science, culture, and conservation) will also be accepted for review and may be selected.

Fellows are expected to explore their projects through research, observation, analysis and interviews, and relate their findings using one or a combination of storytelling tools and media, which may include text, photography, video, audio, graphic illustrations, etc.

Candidates with previous storytelling experience will be most competitive for this fellowship.

In the online application, indicate your intention to apply for the Fulbright-National Geographic Storytelling Award on the Program Information page.

All materials must be received by the national deadline on October 8, 2019 at 5:00pm Eastern Time.
