The Leakey Foundation was formed to foster research into human origins. Recent priorities include research into the environment, archaeology, and human palaeontology of the Miocene, Pliocene, and Pleistocene; the behaviour, morphology, and ecology of the great apes and other primate species; and the behavioural ecology of contemporary hunter-gatherers. Other areas of study have been funded occasionally.
Advanced doctoral students as well as established scientists are eligible for general research grants.
