The Genographic Legacy Fund is inviting applications for grants. GLF awards grants on an annual basis for community-driven projects directly preserving or revitalizing indigenous or traditional culture. Projects from around the world have been funded through this source.

To be eligible for funding, projects must be community-driven and deliver a positive, tangible, and timely benefit that is sustainable after GLF funds have been expended. Projects must also show a strong level of local community involvement in their planning, governance, and implementation.

Funded projects have included documenting a traditional language, oral history, or ceremony; creating culturally-specific educational materials and programs; establishing a local museum or archive; inter-generational knowledge sharing; and preserving significant sites and artifacts.

Applications are due June 15 annually.

Awards will typically not exceed US$25,000.

Restrictions: GLF grants are not intended to be used for indirect costs, overhead, legal actions, and other expenses not directly related to the proposed project. Funds may not be used for salaries, travel or conferences, or for construction or land acquisition.

Applicants with sufficient email access are encouraged to submit their application via email to GenographicLegacy at ngs.org.

Applicants without sufficient email access may submit their application by mail or fax.
