Awesome Foundation $1,000 Grants
Awesome projects range from public artwork to mobile applications to scientific experiments. Projects are not strictly defined, but tend to challenge and expand our understanding of individual and communal potential. They should also bring communities together, casting aside social inhibitions and boundaries for a moment, however temporary. 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.
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.
