The Leakey Foundation
The mission of The Leakey Foundation is to increase scientific knowledge, education, and public understanding of human origins, evolution, behavior, and survival. The Leakey Foundation funds primatology fieldwork and other research related to understanding human origins. We are dedicated to funding scientific research that explores the many facets of human origins and sharing the results of this research through our innovative educational programs. Based in San Francisco, California, we are the only U.S.-based funding organization wholly committed to human origins research and education. The Leakey Foundation promotes a multidisciplinary approach to exploring human origins. We award more than $1,00,000 annually in field and laboratory grants for vital new research and long-term projects. We give special encouragement to early career scientists asking new questions and seeking innovative ways to answer these questions about human evolution. We also provide funding for graduate students from countries where there are limited academic opportunities to earn advanced degrees in fields like paleoanthropology and primatology.
