The Leakey Foundation was formed to further research into human origins. Recent priorities include research into the environment, archaeology, and human palaeontology; into the behaviour, morphology, and ecology of the great apes and other primate species; and into the behavioural ecology of contemporary hunter-gatherers. Other areas of study are rarely considered. Priority for funding is given to the exploratory phases of promising new research projects that meet the stated purpose of the Foundation. The relevance of the project to understanding human origins must be explicit throughout your application. For more information click the ‘more’ word below
