Community Information Challenge application is a two-stage process

Feb. 24, 2012, 9:06 a.m., Posted by Michele McLellan


The Knight Community Information Challenge requires a short initial application. Then, selected applicants are invited to submit a longer, more detailed proposal.

The initial application, due Feb. 27, must be completed online and gives us enough summary information to understand the idea.

If we like your idea, you will be invited to complete a full proposal with more detail on how you plan to implement it and what it will cost.

Entries are reviewed by Knight staff with help from outside reviewers. Knight Foundation’s board of trustees makes the final decision.

Winners will be notified in June.

For more information on the challenge, please see our FAQ.
