AWARD: Rockefeller Foundation Next Century Innovators Awards
In honor of its centennial, the Rockefeller Foundation is inviting the global community for nominations of innovators around the world whose work is improving the situation of poor and vulnerable people. Three nominees will be chosen for the Next Century Innovators Award. Awardees may apply for grants of up to US$100 thousand.
Nominate a person (which may be yourself) or an organization (which may be an organization with which you are affiliated as a founder, director, or employee) applying a specific innovation in a new and different way to promote the well-being of humanity around the world. For purposes of the Competition, "innovation" means a break from previous practice that occurs when different points of view or existing elements are framed, imagined or combined in new ways or when a new pathway is created for solving entrenched social problems, resulting in lasting change within the systems that affect poor and vulnerable people. Subject to these Official Rules, three Awards are expected to be made, including one "Youth Award".
Deadline: February 28, 2013
