Bill Gates' Charity Is Offering $10M to 'Innovators' Who Can Solve the World's Challenges
Bill Gates' charitable foundation is putting up $10 million to fund ideas aimed at improving education, eradicating poverty, stopping climate change, among other causes.
On Tuesday, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced a partnership with the MiSK Foundation, a nonprofit philanthropic organization established by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
The MiSK Grand Challenges initiative will fund 100 "innovators" with $100,000 each. Ideas must be submitted around two themes: education and global citizenship.
A series of "grand challenges" will be launched over a three-year period around the two topics.
The charity is looking for "innovative solutions to challenges facing education systems." And it's also looking at ideas to help deliver on the "Global Goals for Sustainable Development" such as reducing poverty and making sure everyone has access to clean water.
