The Genographic Legacy Fund awards grants on an annual basis for community-driven projects directly preserving or revitalizing indigenous or traditional culture around the world. Funded projects have included documenting a traditional language, oral history, or ceremony; creating culturally specific educational materials and programs; establishing a local museum or archive; inter-generational knowledge sharing; and preserving significant sites and artifacts. To be eligible for funding, projects must be community-driven and deliver a positive, tangible, and timely benefit that is sustainable after GLF funds have been expended. Projects must also show a strong level of local community involvement in their planning, governance, and implementation. Awards will typically not exceed US$25,000.
