These workshops introduce National Geographic Young Explorer grantees—as well as National Geographic explorers, conservationists, and researchers—to students interested in pursuing grants from National Geographic to support their research or project.

Morning Session: Introduction to National Geographic and its role in supporting exploration, research, and conservation.
