Make a donation to the Gordon Getty Grant Fund

To commemorate Mr. Getty's 40th year with The Leakey Foundation Board of Trustees, and his 80th birthday, we have created the Gordon Getty Grant. Each year, the Foundation will award the Gordon Getty Grant to a researcher who shows extraordinary originality while exemplifying a multidisciplinary approach to human origins research.
