FINAL REMINDER: Upcoming Deadline for Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship Applications

The Skoll Foundation announces that August 5, 2008 is the next deadline for receipt of applications for the Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship.


As always, we are looking for social entrepreneurs whose work has the potential for large-scale positive change in the areas of tolerance and human rights, health, environmental sustainability, peace and security, institutional responsibility, and economic and social equity. Within these issues, we are particularly interested in applications from social entrepreneurs working in five critical sub-issue areas that threaten the survival of humanity – climate change, nuclear proliferation, global pandemics, conflict in the Middle East and water scarcity.

Award winners are celebrated at the annual Skoll World Forum following their selection, at the end of March in Oxford, England.

You can read the Award Guidelines, take our eligibility quiz and fill out an application on our Web site:
