The application deadline has passed for the Booz Allen Foundation Innovation Grant.

The Booz Allen Foundation established a $1 million Innovation Fund to help nonprofits, entrepreneurs, thought leaders, innovators at colleges and universities, startups and small businesses harness the power of data, technology, and diverse intellectual capital to improve COVID-19 relief efforts and make a difference. We want to surface the most innovative solutions and empower the individuals and organizations behind those solutions to drive their development and implementation.

Applications have now closed and will undergo an extensive, multi-tiered evaluation process which will culminate with an external group of evaluators that have volunteered their time to judge.  We hope to announce winners in late summer.

Please see our FAQs for more details about the application process.
