The Leakey Foundation was formed to foster research into human origins. The mission of the Leakey Foundation is to increase scientific knowledge and public understanding of human origins, evolution, behavior, and survival. Recent priorities include research into the environments, archeology, and human paleontology of the Miocene, Pliocene, and Pleistocene; the behavior, morphology, and ecology of the great apes and other primate species; and the behavioral ecology of contemporary hunter-gatherers. Other areas of study have been funded occasionally.
General Research Grants
General Research Grants are awarded twice annually and constitute the majority of the Foundation's grant program. Priority for funding is given to the exploratory phases of promising new research projects that meet the stated purpose of the Foundation. The majority of the Foundation's General Research Grants to doctoral student are in the $3,000-$13,000 range; however, larger grants, especially to senior scientists and post-doctoral students, may be funded up to $22,000.
