Bush Foundation Community Innovation grants 2018
Community Innovation grants support communities to use problem-solving processes that lead to more effective, equitable and sustainable solutions. Think of it as civic R&D, allowing communities to develop and test new solutions to community challenges.
There’s a lot of work that happens in between identifying a community problem and implementing a new breakthrough solution, especially if you want to engage your community, make the most of existing assets and work collaboratively with other organizations along the way. The Community Innovation grants support that process – they fund the work that it takes to create a community innovation.
Benefits
The Foundation provides Community Innovation grants of USD 10,000 to USD 200,000. Community Innovation grants of 500 to USD 10,000 are available from our intermediary partner organizations: Headwaters Foundation for Justice (MN), The Consensus Council (ND) and the South Dakota Community Foundation (SD).
Selection Criteria
Community Innovation Grant Program Fit
  • Does the project use inclusive, collaborative and resourceful processes to pursue an innovative solution to a community challenge?
      • Inclusive: meaningfully engaging key stakeholders – thoughtfully identifying those needed to create the intended change and, whenever possible, including those directly affected by the problem.
      • Collaborative: a true joint effort, with partners willing to share ownership and decision-making as they pursue an innovation together.
      • Resourceful: using existing resources and assets creatively to make the most of what a community already has.
  • Is the process likely to lead to a community innovation – a breakthrough in addressing a community need that is more effective, equitable or sustainable than existing approaches?
Implementation
  • Is the project plan thoughtful, realistic and does it address the identified community need?
  • Does the applicant have the capacity to execute the work effectively or have a plan to meet the needed capacity?
Impact
  • Is the project likely to make a significant, sustainable difference, now or in the future?
  • Will the project inspire or inform others?
Additional Considerations
We seek a final portfolio of Community Innovation grantees with balance across:
  • Size of community
  • Size of applicant organization
  • Size of grant request
  • Demographics of communities served
  • Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native nations that share the same geography
  • Type of issue addressed
Elibility
  • Community Innovation grants may be awarded to 501(c)(3) public charities or government entities (including schools). Coalitions or collaboratives are eligible to apply, but only one organization may receive the grant.
  • For organizations that do not have 501(c)(3) status, the Foundation accepts Community Innovation grant applications from fiscal sponsors. The fiscal sponsor organization must submit the grant application and, if the grant is approved, becomes the grantee and receives the funds. Our fiscal sponsorship overview provides additional information.
  • Grants must be used for projects located in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota or the 23 Native nations that share the same geography.
  • Grants must be used for a charitable purpose.

Funded British Council IELTS Scholarships 2018



Funded British Council IELTS Scholarships 2018
The British Council IELTS Scholarships scheme was first introduced in 2015 with an aim to make foreign education more accessible to Bangladeshi students. Overwhelmed by the response, the scheme was re-launched in August 2016 to continue to support IELTS candidates in achieving their dreams of a foreign education. Last year, five winners from across the country were awarded a scholarship worth BDT 300,000 each. Study destinations include UK, Australia, Malaysia, and Germany.
This year, with British Council IELTS Scholarships 2018, they are also making this scholarship available to students who are planning to pursue their higher education in Bangladesh. The core ethos of this scheme is to enhance ‘access to higher education’, thus building the foundation for a stable, economically prosperous and more equal Bangladesh.
