Skoll Foundation Announces New Guidelines for Social
Entrepreneurship Awards

Deadline: Open

The Skoll Foundation's ( http://www.skollfoundation.org/ )
mission is "to advance systemic change to benefit communities
around the world by investing in, connecting, and celebrating
social entrepreneurs."

The 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 sus-
tainability, health, tolerance and human rights, institutional
responsibility, economic and social equity, and peace and
security.

Skoll social entrepreneurs are innovators who have tested and
proved their approach and are poised to replicate or scale up
their work. The Skoll Awards provide later-stage, or mezzanine,
funding, which is generally structured as a $1 million award paid
out over three years. In most cases, the grant is provided for
core support to help organizations expand their programs and
capacity to deliver long-term, sustainable change. The awards
are not intended for new or early-stage programs or initiatives.
Programs submitted for consideration should have a track record
of no less than three years. In addition to core support, the
foundation supports the participation of award recipients in
the annual Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship.

The Skoll Foundation now accepts applications and grants awards
on a year-round basis, with new award winners celebrated once
each year in March at the annual Skoll World Forum on Social
Entrepreneurship. To be considered for funding in advance of
the 2008 Skoll World Forum, applicants must submit their online
application no later than September 24, 2007. Applications sub-
mitted after that date will continue to be reviewed and funded
throughout the year, with awards publicly celebrated at the
subsequent Skoll World Forum.

Please note that, starting in August 2007, applicants who are
not selected must wait twenty-four months before reapplying.

For an in-depth description of the foundation's eligibility
criteria, the application process, application instructions,
and an FAQ, visit the Skoll Foundation Web site.
