Awesome projects range from public artwork to mobile applications to scientific experiments. Grants are provided with no strings attached, and the foundation claims no ownership over the projects it supports. Chapters are divided by geography and by topic of interest. While specifying a chapter to apply to is not necessary (all chapters can view the applications received by all other chapters), many chapters show a preference for local projects. There is also an Innovation in Libraries Grant.
The Awesome Foundation is open to all people and organizations. There are no prerequisites to apply. For complete program guidelines and application instructions, as well as examples of previously funded projects, see the Awesome Foundation website.
