Emergent Ventures funding for COVID-19 and general projects, Mercatus Center, George Mason University, Arlington, VA. Deadline: Ongoing (posted April 20,2020).
Emergent Ventures wants to jumpstart high-reward ideas – ‘Moonshots’ in many cases – that advance prosperity, opportunity, liberty, and well-being. They welcome the unusual and the unorthodox. Their goal is positive social change, but they do not mind if you make a profit from your project. (Indeed, a quick path to revenue self-sufficiency is a feature not a bug!)
Projects will either be fellowships or grants: fellowships involve time in residence at the Mercatus Center in Northern Virginia; grants are one-time or slightly staggered payments to support a project. Applicants are encouraged to think big, but very small grants or short fellowships will also be considered if they might change the trajectory of the applicant’s life. Applications from all ages and all parts of the world are encouraged.
NOTE: This support is not intended for scientific or biomedical research, although Emergent Ventures is also distributing funding for that. These grants/fellowships are for social projects which may be about the response to COVID-19, or may be about other social issues.
