Through our Academy and Awards Programme we provide funding, mentoring and support to high potential social entrepreneurs and their projects.

Every year we hold an open call for applications which is followed by a multi-stage selection process to determine the social entrepreneurs that we will support that particular year. Our programmes cater for projects at various stages of development and aim to support social entrepreneurs with the greatest potential to bring about positive change to Ireland’s most pressing social and environmental challenges.

Please note that the applications for The Academy and Awards programmes will re-open on 14th February 2018.

More information and instructions will be available on our website from mid-January.
