The Leakey Foundation Board of Trustees
The Leakey Foundation’s Board of Trustees is comprised of individuals committed to the science of human origins. Members of the board reside around the world but come together three times annually to discuss scientific developments, review business matters, and to award the funding of grants (based on the recommendations of the Scientific Executive Committee and outside peer reviews).
Scientific Executive Committee
At the heart of The Leakey Foundation’s scientific direction is the Scientific Executive Committee (SEC). Outstanding paleoanthropologists, archaeologists, primatologists, geologists, and leaders in related fields serve on the SEC on a voluntary basis. Currently, The Leakey Foundation SEC is comprised of thirteen scientists at the top of their field.
