National Geographic Early Career Grants
All proposed projects should be bold, innovative, and potentially transformative and have a primary focus in conservation, education, research, storytelling, or technology. Projects should also align to one of our three focus areas.

We do not usually consider applications that support strictly laboratory or collections work. Grants are awarded on the basis of merit and exist independent of the Society's other divisions.

Please note that this is a highly competitive grant program; we receive many more applications than we are able to fund.

Project start dates should be a minimum of six months after the submission deadline to ensure any awarded funds are received in time.

University of Michigan and Stamps School of Art & Design Roman J. Witt Residency
The mission of the Roman J. Witt Residency Program is to support the production of new work in collaboration with the Stamps School of Art & Design community. The program awards one residency per academic year for a visiting artist/designer to work at the school to develop a new work in collaboration with students and faculty.

The artist/designer will spend a good portion of the week working in this gallery (a minimum of three days, with 6 hours per day during museum open hours), creating and installing a work of art that will remain on view. This act of “public making” is an exemplary teaching tool and provides the Stamps School community and the university at large with the opportunity to witness and partake in the creation of a defined work from concept to completion with the artist in residence.

The Witt Residency is open to both established and emerging artists/designers.

Witt Residents receive an honorarium of $20,000 for up to twelve weeks in residence served over an academic year. In addition to the honorarium, residents will be provided with housing, studio space, and up to $4,000 funding support for project materials and installation.

Applications are reviewed by a distinguished international selection committee composed of artists, academics, and cultural leaders across all disciplines. To date, we have hosted over 170 residencies featuring artists from more than 65 nations.

Residencies range from two to six weeks and will be scheduled throughout the year by mutual agreement between the accepted artist and The Watermill Center. Please note, residencies will not take place during the months of July and August.

Emerging and established artists of all disciplines, scholars, musicians, theatre and dance companies, artist collectives and designers who are interested in developing new and exciting work that challenges existing norms and practices in their field.

Rema Hort Mann Foundation - Home
The Rema Hort Mann Foundation was created in September 1995 by friends and family of Rema Hort Mann to honor her joyful and vivacious life after her untimely death from stomach cancer at age 30. The Foundation was born around a kitchen table with the intent to celebrate Rema’s life. Through the efforts of friends and associates, it has evolved into a dynamic and effective organization, acting as an advocate for emerging artists and a bedrock of support for individuals suffering from cancer. To carry out these goals, we offer unrestricted grants, by nomination only, to promising artists who demonstrate an ability and commitment to making substantial contributions to the arts, but require financial support to do so. And we provide grants for travel, accommodations, child care and related expenses to help strengthen the emotional and familial support for cancer patients while they are undergoing treatment.
