The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is accepting applications for its Grand Challenges Explorations initiative, an agile, accelerated grant program encouraging bold approaches aimed at improving the lives of the world’s poorest people. Anyone – students, scientists, entrepreneurs – with a transformative idea is invited to submit an easy, online, two-page application.
The Gates Foundation and an independent group of reviewers will select the most innovative proposals, and grants will be awarded within approximately four months from the proposal submission deadline. Initial grants are USD$100,000 each. Projects demonstrating potential will have the opportunity to receive additional funding up to $1 million (usd).
