The National Geographic Society is committed to ensuring its student travel program is accessible, regardless of access to financial resources. As part of its commitment, the Society makes available a limited number of financial scholarships for students whose participation in a National Geographic Student Travel program is only possible through outside support.
Students completing grades 9-12 are eligible to apply for National Geographic Student Travel programs. Scholarship eligibility is limited to students who are U.S. residents. Many applications are received and allocation is competitive.
How to Apply for a Scholarship: To be considered for a scholarship, please complete the application, including the statement of need and all required forms. Applications will be accepted until February 24, 2023, or until we have received 300 applications, whichever is first. Click here to access the application.
