Google.org Impact Challenge for Women and Girls invites applications to fund organizations creating pathways to prosperity for women and girls in 2021.
The challenge seeks to empower women and girls to reach their full economic potential and thrive. This is because gender inequity is one of the most urgent challenges society faces. Furthermore, COVID-19 has put the economic future of women and girls at even greater risk. Google.org believes that solving big problems requires collective action, and the people closest to the challenges are often those closest to the solution.
They want to support organizations helping women and girls turn their economic potential into power: from programs addressing systemic barriers to economic equality, to those cultivating entrepreneurship, developing financial independence, and more.
Worth of Award
- Each selected organization will receive between $300,000 and $2 million in funding and other support from Google.
- The selected organizations will be announced in late 2021.
All applications for the Google.org Impact Challenge will be accessed based on the following criteria:
How will the proposed project create pathways to prosperity for women and girls or empower them to reach their full economic potential, and to what extent? Is the application grounded in research and data about the problem and the solution? How many people will be affected if successful and to what extent?
What is the core insight or innovation that differentiates this project from others, in philosophy or execution? What makes the proposed project unique?
Does your team have a well-developed, realistic plan, along with the right expertise and skills, to execute the proposal? Has your team identified the right partners and domain experts for implementation? Yet again, to best understand the needs of those you’re serving, does your team have women in positions of leadership?
If successful, how can this project scale beyond the initial proposal? Can it scale directly, serve as a model for other efforts, or advance the field?
How to Apply
Note that all applications should be made online via the official website.
Deadline: Finally, the deadline for applications is April 9.
