Changemaker Grant Application Opens May 20
Burton D. Morgan Foundation is seeking proposals for the Changemaker Grants, an initiative of the Morgan Scout Fund in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the JumpStart Higher Education Collaboration Council (JSHECC).
The Morgan Scout Fund has been established to encourage proactive and innovative solutions to gaps in the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem. Under this umbrella, the Changemaker Grants will support programs, projects, and research efforts that address gaps in collegiate entrepreneurship in an innovative way. The faculty and staff we encounter in our work are visionaries; many have ideas with the potential to change collegiate entrepreneurship for the better but lack the resources to try such untested and experimental initiatives. The vision of the Morgan Scout Fund Changemaker Grants supports this experimentation in pursuit of bold, inventive, entrepreneurial goals. While proposals may address any number of gap areas, the Foundation is keenly interested in pathways initiatives: work that bridges the transitions between the youth, collegiate, and adult spaces.
Grantees will be expected to actively engage with the JSHECC, including presenting progress, findings, and outcomes at future meetings. Grantees will also contribute to the Foundation’s knowledge sharing work, which may include Lunch and Learns, guest blogs, and presentations at future Board meetings.
