The Explorers Club grants were established to foster a new generation of explorers and build a reservoir of young persons dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about the world through discoveries made in field research. Grants are offered to students conducting individual scientific or exploration research projects through their academic institution under the supervisor of an instructor.
Awards typically range from $500-1,500. A few awards may be granted up to a $5,000 award level.
The applicant's instructor must write a letter of support.
High school students and college undergraduates may apply.
Usually early November.
How To Apply:
Students or alumni, as applicable, may apply directly to this program. Applicants are encouraged, however, to work with SF State's fellowship advisor well in advance of the program deadline to perfect their application essays and other materials.
