2015 Leakey Foundation Research Grants for International Students





The Leakey Foundation is awarding research grants for advanced doctoral students (advanced to candidacy – all but dissertation) and established scientists.

Research Grants are awarded twice annually (in May and December) and constitute the majority of the Foundation’s grant program. The Foundation funds research related specifically to human origins.


Eligibility
Advanced doctoral students (advanced to candidacy - all but dissertation) and established scientists are eligible for general research grants. There are no citizenship restrictions. However, all applications must be in English.

Funding
The majority of The Leakey Foundation’s Research Grants to doctoral students are in the $3,000-$15,000 range.

Larger grants, especially to senior scientists and post-doctoral students, may be funded up to $25,000. Priority of funding is commonly given to exploratory phases of promising new research projects that meet the stated purpose of the Foundation.

Please consider the below if you are thinking of applying for a General Research Grant:
  • Is my research relevant to human origins and evolution?
  • For Ph.D candidates: Will I be advanced to candidacy (all but dissertation) before the deadline for application?
  • Am I affiliated with an academic or research institution? We do not award funds to individuals.
  • Am I fully compliant on all prior Leakey Foundation awards?

The next deadline for applications is July 15th.
