This month, we are extremely proud to award our October Awesome Fellowship to Josh Gordonson, whose plan is to construct a handheld cotton candy cannon that can “coat a rotating human in a cotton candy cocoon in one-three minutes.” Need we say more? Read more about the proposal here.

Come celebrate with us, meet the fellow and our micro-trustees. We’ll be talking about and hear what we’re scheming for the future, and answer your questions about how you can apply for the next round of Awesome grants coming out in October. To submit to be the Awesome Fellow for October, please drop us a line by the 10/15/09.

A venerable institution founded in June 2009, The Awesome Foundation for the Arts and Sciences gives monthly $1,000 fellowships to projects that advance the interest of Awesomeness in our universe. There are no requirements for applying, no definite criteria, and no limitations beyond the necessity for being awesome. The winners receive the money in cash, check, or gold doubloons.
