Closing date: 31 Jul 2018
ECW is seeking proposals for bold ideas to help address the billion-dollar finance gap for education in emergencies and protracted crises. Ideas should be substantive and have the potential to raise at least US$50 million per year continually (or US$100 million total once, if a onetime effort). Sources should allow the provision of grant funding as ECW is committed to providing equal and free education.
GOAL AND DELIVERABLE
The goal of the Challenge is to surface new and actionable ideas for large scale resource mobilization efforts with a real potential for implementation. Deliverable of the Challenge will be a unique idea and a business plan for implementation.
ECW will award up to three prizes of up to US$25,000 to those who can offer the best, most innovative and credible idea and a business plan for resource mobilization. In addition to the cash prize, ECW may consider supporting the implementation of winning proposals with seed funding.
