National Geographic in the Field: Young Explorers Grants


Enhancing our efforts to foster the next generation of researchers,
explorers, and conservationists, National Geographic now provides seed
grants to individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 in the fields we have
a rich history of supporting. Young Explorers grants provide the
opportunity for many recipients to pursue their first experiences in the

Young Explorers Grants (YEG) offer opportunities to individuals between
the ages of 18 and 25 to pursue research, conservation, and
exploration-related projects consistent with National Geographic's
existing grant programs, including: the Committee for Research and
Exploration (CRE), the Expeditions Council (EC), and the Conservation
Trust (CT).

The Young Explorers Grants Program supports a variety of projects—and an
age-range of applicants—that are generally not covered by other sources of

Applicants are not required to have advanced degrees. However, a record of
prior experience in the fields of research, conservation, or exploration
should be submitted as it pertains to the proposed project.

Funding is not restricted to United States citizens—foreign nationals are
invited to apply. Researchers planning work in countries abroad should
make great effort to include at least one local collaborator as part of
their team.

Where Should I Apply?
The Committee for Research and Exploration funds hypothesis-based
scientific research. Consult the CRE website for more information on the
fields of research funded.

The Conservation Trust funds innovative and applied approaches to
conservation with potential for global application. Consult the CT website
for more information on the types of projects funded.

The Expeditions Council funds exploration and adventure around the world.
Consult the EC website for more information on the types of programs

Grant Limits
Young Explorers Grants vary in amount depending on significance of the
project, though most range between US $2,000 and $5,000. National
Geographic Society funds often serve as complementary support—thus the
program encourages applicants to seek additional, concurrent funding from
other sources.

Grant Restrictions
National Geographic Society grants may not be used for indirect costs,
overhead, and other expenses not directly related to the project. Fringe
benefits are also excluded, as are salaries.

Funds may not be used for travel to scientific/professional meetings or
conferences, tuition, vacations, study abroad programs, volunteer
activities, legal actions, land acquisition, endowments, construction of
permanent field stations, or publication of research results.

Grant recipients are expected to provide the National Geographic Society
with rights of first refusal for popular publication and other media
coverage of their findings.

Obtaining an Application Form
Applying for a Young Explorers Grant is a two-step process.

First, you must submit a pre-application form online. If your
pre-application is approved, you will be sent an email with a link and a

Internet censorship to be followed by censorship of radio and TV

Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by a government announcement on
14 May that it will introduce new regulations for community radio
stations and cable and satellite TV stations aimed at controlling
programme content. Broadcasters would be required to seek permission
for each programme being aired, the government said.

"The adoption of these regulations would deal a fatal blow to free
expression in Thailand, which is already heavily restricted on the
Internet," Reporters Without Borders said. "The government will have
the power to ban programmes that question their policies and
legitimacy. We urge the authorities to scrap this plan."

Sathit Wongnongtoey, the minister in charge of the prime minister's
office, said the regulations would enable the authorities to take
action against any broadcaster airing content deemed to undermine
democracy. They would be enforced even-handedly with both "red-
shirt" (anti-government) and "yellow shirt" (pro-government)
broadcasters, Sathit said.

"Once the regulations take effect, any broadcast station airing
content deemed to be politically incendiary will not be allowed to
operate," he added.

The communication ministry has been censoring the Internet strictly
since January, ridding it of all content that is deemed to be
"politically incendiary" or to "attack the king." Suwicha Thakor, for
example, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on 3 April on a lese
majeste charge for posting content critical of the monarchy online.


Après Internet, le gouvernement veut mettre en place une censure sur
la radio et la télévision

Reporters sans frontières s'inquiète de l'annonce du gouvernement, le
14 mai 2009, de sa volonté de mettre en place une réglementation
visant à contrôler le contenu des programmes des stations de radio et
des chaînes de télévision par câble et par satellite. Le gouvernement
veut exiger des stations de radio communautaires et des chaînes de
télévision de demander la permission pour diffuser chacun de leur

"L'adoption de cette réglementation porterait un coup fatal à la
liberté de la presse dans le pays, qui connaît déjà de grandes
restrictions sur Internet. Les autorités auront le pouvoir
d'interdire les programmes qui remettent en cause leur politique et
leur légitimité. Nous demandons au gouvernement d'abandonner ce
projet", a déclaré l'organisation.

Sathit Wongnongtoey, ministre du bureau du Premier ministre, a
déclaré que le gouvernement interdira tous programmes diffusés par
les radios communautaires ou par les chaînes de télévision du câble
ou du satellite qui seront politiquement "sujet à discordes" ou
"insultants",, aussi bien pour les programmes des chemises rouges,
opposants au régime, que des chemises jaunes.

"Lorsque cette réglementation aura pris effet, toute station émettant
des contenus considérés comme politiquement incorrects ne sera pas
autorisée à opérer", a déclaré Sathit Wongnongtoey.

Depuis janvier 2009, le ministre de la Communication pratique une
censure de masse sur Internet, vidant cet espace de tout contenu
"politiquement incorrect" ou "portant atteinte au roi". L'internaute
Suwicha Thakor a par exemple été condamné à dix ans de prison le 3
avril 2009, pour "crime de lèse-majesté", en raison de la publication
en ligne de divers contenus portant atteinte à la monarchie.
