Given the global nature of the challenge, applications must be submitted in English. We acknowledge and understand the barrier this places on those for whom English is not a first language. However, because of the multiple review processes, peer reviews, and expert panel reviews, English was chosen to provide a consistency across all entries, and reduce the risk of translation error or misinterpreting an application. We have been intentional in the recruitment of expert reviewers to ensure representation of global perspectives and knowledge. We appreciate your accommodation and understanding.
Finalists will receive planning grants and technical assistance, so early-to-mid-stage ideas are acceptable.
