Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation Welcomes Applications for Youth, Veteran Employment Programs

The Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation aims to support innovative projects that help youth with disabilities develop the leadership and employment skills they need to succeed.

To that end, MEAF welcomes applications for grants ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 per year for up to three years in support of organizations working to develop youth leadership and employment skills, and/or create tools for employers that help break down barriers and increase employment opportunities for youth and veterans with disabilities. MEAF also will consider projects to create tools that help break down barriers to employment and increase job opportunities for young people with disabilities entering the workforce, including returning veterans with disabilities. MEAF defines youth from birth through college-age (about 26).

Grants will be awarded in support of projects that present an innovative approach that leads to measurable employment outcomes for youth with disabilities; are national in scope, or model projects that have a definite plan for national dissemination and replication; support U.S. youth with disabilities as the main beneficiary, or young veterans with disabilities transitioning to civilian life; promote the full-inclusion of youth with disabilities alongside their peers without disabilities, and promote inclusive, competitive employment practices; and have a well-defined evaluation, dissemination, and replication plan.

Eligible applicants include those tax-exempt as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and an eligibility quiz, see the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation website.

Deadline: November 1, 2021
