National Geographic invests in bold people and transformative ideas in the fields of exploration, scientific research, storytelling and education. Lyda Hill Philanthropies has several active, individual grants to women explorers to conduct their research. A first-of-its-kind $1 million grant, IF/THEN is supporting more than 100 women National Geographic Explorers to do their research, tell their stories, and inspire the next generation of world changers to consider STEM adventures and careers. Explorers are already accessing the funding to gain new skills in their fields, travel to and participate in conferences, take advantage of career-building opportunities, invest in professional development and cover family and dependent care costs.
