Recent and Past Grantees

Curious about The Leakey Foundation’s funded research projects and scholarship recipients? Search our grants database to learn more about the exciting human origins research, scholarships, and emergency grants made possible by our generous supporters.

Although we have been awarding grants since 1968, this searchable database only goes back to 2012, giving you more than a decade of information. You can search by program, recipient PhD status, keywords such as topics, species, and countries. You can also search for specific dates and time periods between 2012 and today!

The search results will show you:

  • The recipient’s name
  • Institutional affiliation at the time they were awarded their grant or scholarship
  • Date and month the award was approved
  • Grant or scholarship program
  • Project title
