DescriptionThe Foundation’s Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship support social entrepreneurs whose work has “the potential for large-scale influence on critical challenges of our time: environmental sustainability, health, tolerance and human rights, institutional responsibility, social and economic equality, peace, and security.” Qualifying organizations will have a social entrepreneur as a leader and have implemented programs that demonstrate effective approaches to critical social and environmental challenges with global implications. They will also have a clear, compelling plan for reaching scale by expanding or replicating their own work, and/or inspiring and supporting others to do so. And they will identify the resources and supporters crucial to replicating and sustaining the work at scale and commit to working with peers at the Foundation to develop and communicate success stories. Programs submitted for consideration should have a track record of at least three years. Grant support may not exceed 20 percent of an organization’s operating budget in any fiscal year. An application is available online.
Contact information and additional details are available to members of the Society.
