Each calendar year the Australian Geographic Society donates generously to maintain its programme of sponsorship of Australian adventurers, scientific and environmental research, and community projects. Over the years it has spent much time and effort supporting Australian endeavour in all these fields.

Australian scientists, community organisations and individuals developing projects in Australia and abroad are welcome to apply for Society sponsorship.

There are two types of sponsorships available through the Australian Geographic Society:

Project Sponsorships (up to $5000 in four categories: science, environment, adventure, community).

Nancy Bird Walton Sponsorship for Female Adventurers (one grant of $5000)
The funding is awarded to an Australian woman planning to undertake an adventurous pursuit. The recipient of the sponsorship will be chosen by a panel made up of female adventurers, members of Nancy Bird Walton’s family and representatives of the Australian Geographic Society. All Australian female adventurers are eligible to apply for this grant.
