FUNDING: Rockefeller Foundation Innovation Challenges program
The Rockefeller Foundation has announced the launch of a new online effort to find innovative ideas that have the potential to create long-term solutions to ongoing global challenges. The second annual Innovation Challenges program will focus on enhanced data practices, irrigation efficiencies, and farming revitalization. The program aims to uncover and reward ideas that show unique promise for addressing global needs from a variety of geographies, perspectives, and contexts. Fifteen finalists, five in each category, will be selected by a panel of judges and recognized at the 2012 Rockefeller Foundation Innovation Forum this summer. As many as nine of the finalists will be selected to apply for up to $100,000 in grant support to further develop or implement their ideas.
Deadline: May 25, 2012
