Offered by The Roddenberry Foundation
|Stage||Stage 2: Research & Development and Stage 3: Proof of Concept|
|Region||Africa, Asia and Pacific, Europe and Eurasia, Latin America / Caribbean and Middle East and North Africa|
|Focus Areas||All Sectors|
|Planned Usage of Funds||While we do not restrict how you use the grant funds we tend to favor applicants who plan to use their grant for direct costs associated with their idea/project. We are less likely to fund parts of a monthly budget, complement existing salaries, or for a project that has an overall budget that is many millions of dollars more than what you’re seeking from the Catalyst Fund.|
|Management Team||We are looking for individuals or teams who are unbound by convention; whose projects challenge our thinking; who compel us to see a problem in a new light; and whose creativity and imagination redefine notions of what can be done and how.You can be a seasoned social entrepreneur or a first- time changemaker. There are no disqualifiers. No prerequisites.|
1. In the first stage, we screen all applications to ensure that they meet the criteria for a Catalyst Grant. Proposals in this stage will be evaluated on a variety of factors including innovativeness, clarity, scalability, capability, and impact.
2. Applicants whose proposals pass the first stage of evaluation will be invited to participate in a brief phone call with one of our team members.
3. Proposals that pass the second stage of evaluation will be sent to a TRF committee for review. That’s it! If offered a grant, awardees will be required to sign a Grant agreement that includes timelines and deliverables.
