Financial Support for Your Project:
Awards will be made in three funding categories. Winners will be announced in January 2015.
- Level 1: $10,000-25,000
- Level 2: $50,000-75,000
- Level 3: $75,000-100,000
Trips to Washington, D.C., and San Francisco, CA:
- If funded, two members of your team will make two trips throughout your project’s development:
- Washington, D.C., to meet with Latino community leaders and policy makers
- San Francisco Bay Area (Silicon Valley) to meet with tech innovators at major companies and startups, such as Google, Facebook, and Uber. Winners invited to Google will be paired with the tech giant’s Marketing, Creative Labs, and Android teams to discuss their projects and gain expert advice.
- Awardees are also encouraged — though not required — to plan, budget for, and attend the 2015 Digital Media and Learning (DML) Conference, in Los Angeles, an annual conference of tech innovators and developers that’s supported by the MacArthur Foundation.
