Echoing Green Offers Support for Social Entrepreneurs

"Each year, Echoing Green awards twenty two-year fellowships to social entrepreneurs working to create innovative new organizations to help change their communities, countries, or the world for the better.

Echoing Green seeks individuals or partnerships (organizations led by two people) with: innovative solutions to significant social problems; strategies to create high-impact, sustainable change in people's lives; and the ability to grow and lead a new organization.

Organizations must be the original idea of the applicant. Organizations must be independent and autonomous. The applicant must be the primary decision maker for the organization's development and management. Organizations must be in a start-up phase. To be considered a start-up, the applicant may have been running the organization full-time for approximately two years and Echoing Green's financial support should qualify it as a major/primary early funder. Applicants who have only worked on their organization on a part-time basis or have yet to start an organization are generally considered eligible.

The application process is open to citizens of all nationalities, working in any country. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and must have sufficient English fluency to participate in interviews and Echoing Green events.

Fellows receive up to $90,000 ($60,000 for individuals and $90,000 for partnerships of two people) in seed funding and technical support over two years to turn their innovative ideas into sustainable social change organizations."
