Nat Geo's 10,000th Research Grant Recipient

National Geographic has long been associated with Jacques-Yves Cousteau's deep sea exploration, Bob Ballard's discovery of the Titanic and Hiram Bingham's excavation of the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu. But what is at the heart of these great discoveries is often an untold story: the grants that fund these expeditions. The Society celebrates its 10,000th grant award to Krithi Karanth, marking more than a century of grantmaking.
