Grant Funding Increases Despite Tough Economy

In these tough economic times, we work hard to maintain our grant funding for scientific research projects. Despite this challenging environment, we have been able to increase our grant funding over the last two years, adding $85,000 overall to our total annual grants given since 2008.

In addition, 80% of our total budget goes to science research and education, making The Leakey Foundation a highly efficient non-profit foundation providing essential support to human origins research.

Our grant offerings are mainly split between Paleoanthropology and Primate Behavior, in addition to research into modern hunter-gatherer groups. Here is a full list of our most recently funded grants.

We also offer Franklin Mosher Baldwin Memorial Fellowships to provide financial assistance for scholars with citizenship in a developing country who wish to obtain an advanced degree from an institution outside the scholar’s home country. The aim of these fellowships is to support young scholars in developing countries rich in archeological evidence of human evolution who may not otherwise have access to research education and training.

Three easy ways you can support the work of The Leakey Foundation:

A generous donor has pledged to give $1 for every $2 that you donate, ensuring that your contributions will go even farther.

All donations are charitable deductions, and help us directly fund important scientific research into human origins.
