Heads up, hustlers: The deadline for the next round of Girlboss Foundation grants is nearly upon us! You’ll need to have your electronic application submitted and physical applications postmarked by 11:59 PST on Saturday, December 31 in order to be considered for this round.
Here’s a quick refresher on what we’re looking for and what a grant from the Girlboss Foundation entails:
Grants are awarded on a biannual basis to female creatives pursuing entrepreneurial endeavors. Each grant beneficiary receives project funding for $15,000, plus exposure through the Girlboss social channels as well as local and regional press. By supporting aspiring female entrepreneurs and creatives, the Girlboss Foundation aims to empower the up-and-coming generation of female visionaries and leaders.
Since our launch in 2014, the Girlboss Foundation has awarded over $120,000 in financial grants to women in the worlds of design, fashion, music, and the arts.
