MacArthur Foundation Invites Applications for Second 100&Change Competition

Through its 100&Change competition, the John D. And Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation awards a single $100 million grant in support of a bold proposal that will deliver measurable progress toward solving a significant critical problem of our time.

Proposals from any sector are encouraged, and any organization or legal entity (with the exception of government agencies) may apply. Individuals are ineligible to apply.

The foundation suggests that applicants use an organizational readiness tool to investigate how well-suited both the organization and its proposal are for the competition prior to applying.

To be eligible, applicants must register by July 16, 2019. Applications will be accepted through August 6, 2019, with the top hundred proposals to be selected in February 2020 and finalists selected in the spring of 2020. During the spring and summer of 2020, finalists will work with an expert team to strengthen their proposals, present a preliminary plan for monitoring and evaluation and learning, and demonstrate authentic engagement with communities of interest before submitting their revised project plans. The MacArthur Foundation’s board of directors will select the final award recipient in the fall of 2020.

See the 100&Change website for complete competition guidelines, application instructions, and to access the organizational readiness tool.

Deadline: July 16, 2019 (Registration Deadline)
