LYDA HILL ANNOUNCES NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY: COMMITS $1 MILLION TO SOCIETY IN SUPPORT OF FEMALE EXPLORERS

The Lyda Hill Foundation today announced a $1,000,000 grant to the National Geographic Society dedicated to supporting female scientists and explorers. The news was shared with a surprised crowd at the 2018 National Geographic Explorers Festival in Washington, D.C., a celebration of exploration bringing together the most fascinating and innovative scientists, conservationists, explorers and storytellers to share — with one another and the world — how their discoveries and ideas are creating change for the better.

Presented from the Festival stage by Nicole Small, president of the Lyda Hill Foundation, the gift embodies Lyda Hill’s ongoing commitment to advancing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). This grant builds on the Foundation’s recent efforts to promote women making leading scientific breakthroughs; help them tell their stories; and inspire the next generation of world changers to consider STEM adventures and careers.
