We are particularly interested in measuring both student and organizational outcomes. Applicants must request funding of no less than $10,000 and no more than $125,000, and the grant period of performance must be between 6 months and 24 months.

Evergreen National Education Prize
Last year was a great inaugural year for Evergreen, culminating in the selection of College Possible as the first ever winner. The $100,000 Evergreen Prize is designed to identify and support the scaling-up of programs that best help low-income youth access and complete college or vocational degrees. The prize is offered by the Greenwald Family Foundation and led by a Steering Committee and Judges Committee that represent leaders from education, philanthropy, and other sectors. This year, applications are limited to organizations with annual operating budgets of under 8 million dollars. Monetary prizes will be offered to all 3 finalists rather than just the winner.
