The submission window for the newly formed chapter’s inaugural grant is March 1 – 20, 2014. The funds will be awarded April during the chapter’s launch event. Proposals are simple: 350 – 1500 words submitted using a simple online application that explains why the project meets the foundation’s standard for awesomeness and how the project will immediately impact the city. The Atlanta Chapter’s grants will support projects in sciences, arts, civic engagement, media, entertainment… just about anything as long as long as it contributes to making Atlanta awesome. The grants can go to groups, individuals, small no-profit organizations, almost any entity. Just like other Awesome Foundation chapters, the monthly $1000 grant is obtained from contributions by the chapter’s trustees who make a monthly contribution to fund the award. Trustees also vote on the submissions to determine who receives funding. To apply:www.AwesomeAtlanta.org Connect with the chapter: Twitter @AwesomeAtlanta – IG #AwesomeAtlanta – FB/AwesomeAtlanta.
