Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships of $80,000 to USA, Canada, and International individuals for social innovation projects that bring positive change. The fellowship also includes a comprehensive leadership development program, wellbeing support, networking opportunities, leader support, and pro-bono support from leading professionals.

What Echoing Green looks for in applicants:

  • Leadership Skills: You have the ability to drive ideas forward, build support for your vision, and lead an organization toward its goals.
  • Purpose Alignment: You can demonstrate a deep conviction and passion for the issue you are committed to addressing. You can also illustrate your dedication to solving the problem will not waiver even if your organization’s form shifts over time.
  • Relationship to and Expertise on the Issue: Social innovators who are closest to their communities possess the ideas and authenticity to affect the greatest change — your proximity is one of your most significant assets. You can showcase an understanding of root causes and your relationship with the community impacted by the issue you are addressing.

What Echoing Green looks for in organizations:

  • Innovation: Your organization seeks to bring about dramatic, not just incremental, change. You can communicate how your organization builds upon or makes improvements to an existing model or introduces an innovation into a new context.
  • Changing Systems: Social innovators know that big problems require audacious thinking, even when the solution is simple. You can define how your solution can directly impact many lives, shift a community’s trajectory, or change a system and structures.
  • Racial Equity: Racial equity is an end-state that requires ongoing actions to build a world where all people have equal opportunity and resources to thrive. Your organization centers racial equity in its work, repositions communities of color in relation to power and resources, and emphasizes transformative solutions that impact multiple systems. To achieve your mission you center the knowledge, visions, and prioritization of the leadership of people most impacted by structural racism.
