The Skoll Foundation is accepting applications from innovative social entrepreneurs for their Skoll Awards. The application deadline is March 3, 2009. This annual award is aimed at supporting “social entrepreneurs who have tested and proved their approach, are poised to replicate or scale up their work to create equilibrium change, and engage others with a message that resonates with individuals whose resources are crucial to advancing solutions” to the world’s most critical challenges. Specifically they’re looking for innovations in the area of climate change, nuclear proliferation, pandemics, conflict in the Middle East and water scarcity.
