RICHARD CORNUELLE AWARD FOR SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Each year since 2001, the Institute, in conjunction with a committee of distinguished scholars, practitioners, and foundation leaders, selects up to five individuals who have originated and effectively implemented a nonprofit organization providing direct services to those in need. Nominations for the $25,000 awards are solicited not from the organizations or individuals themselves but from donors—who have already demonstrated their own belief in the organizations they nominate. In keeping with the social entrepreneurship program's emphasis on the vitality of American civil society, the award is directed toward those with original ideas brought to fruition with predominantly private support, rather than in response to government grant programs.
DEADLINE: The nomination period for the 2012 awards closes on February 24.
