IE FOUNDATION GRANTS4IMPACT CHALLENGE 2021
On the occasion of the Campus Life Virtual Fair, IE Foundation is launching the “IE Foundation Grants4Impact Challenge 2021”, through which 3 grants of 1,000€ each will be awarded to three different IE clubs so that they can carry out one social impact initiative aimed at supporting one –or more- IE values & building community.
In addition to helping its students succeed through its scholarship program and by fostering knowledge that transcends borders and disciplines, one of the main pillars of IE Foundation is engaging with the IE community through the values shared by all IE members. We achieve this by supporting positive change, promoting and co-funding social action initiatives that embrace diversity, community-building, and fostering cross-cultural communication.
Every year IE Foundation, in collaboration with Campus Life, supports many club initiatives, such as the LGBT+@Work conference, the Net Impact Social Responsibility Forum, TEDxMadrid, as well as the Africa Day and China Day events, Women Leadership Conference, and collective projects such as Financieros sin Fronteras, Wuha Sira, South Summit, Hay Festival Segovia and the IE Foundation Prizes in the Humanities.
That is why, on the occasion of the Campus Life Virtual Fair, IE Foundation has launched the “IE Foundation Grants4Impact Challenge 2021”, through which 3 grants of 1,000€ each will be awarded to three different IE clubs so that they can carry out one social impact initiative aimed at supporting one –or more- IE values & building community.
Candidates will be able to apply from February 3rd until March 11th at 11.59 PM. Preselected candidates will be announced on March 16th and they will present their initiative before a jury constituted of IE Foundation members and IE Campus Life representatives on March 23rd.
During the pitch, they will have to explain their business plan, budget proposal, impact keys –social impact, sustainability, gender equality, entrepreneurship, diversity, etc. – and justify why they deserve the grant. The winners will be announced on March 25th.
